Thank you for replying to my post. I appreciate it.
I am however, somewhat confused. I use the same username, with FTP, SFTP and shell access for a bunch of different domains, including the one DH set up for me.
I have a .forward and a .procmailrc in my root directory. I have set up several fully hosted email addresses, both in the original domain and in other domains that have the same username.
However, mail addressed to any fully-hosted email address, whether in the original domain or another domain with the same username, other than the original email address DH set up for me, does not see the .forward file and therefore does not get routed through Procmail.
This behavior, as I understand it, is not compatible with what you say and I quote:
“With DreamHost you can provide your own procmail filters by uploading them to the user account for the mailbox. Obviously with a mailbox-only user you cannot since there is no FTP/SFTP/shell access.”
What is a mailbox-only user? I have only one user. The email addresses do not use a username, they use the full email address instead. They are however, assigned to a user, which in my case, is the one and only.
I am not talking about forward-only addresses, but fully-hosted addresses with one and the same username. Forward-only address is what I had to do for my work-around, forwarding another address to the original email address DH set up for me, so that the message would be routed through Procmail. I cannot understand your statement:
“Forward-only addresses bypass mailbox processing which means you need setup the address to forward to a mailbox address that has a procmail filter.”
Since there is a Procmail filter in the root directory that serves many domains with the same username. Am I being dense and missing something? Why does only the email address DH set up for me gets routed through the .forward file, while not other fully-hosted email addresses with the same username, even for the same domain?
TIA for any help.
