    Default Dyanmic Routing Tables?

    We currently use CommuniGate on Mac OS X (and are looking to migrate away from it!) - we have a nifty feature where we can create aliases on the fly. For example:
    plc_whateverIwant@domain.com
    and it routes to plc@domain.com -- this way we can allow our clients to use an alias to sign up for websites, so if we get spammed we can black hole that individual alias.
    I'm aware you can use + -- but most websites don't recognize them. So we switched to underscores.
    Is this possible? It's a deal killer/clincher!

    hi

    zimbra supports this fine. basically any mta with dynamic lookup tables will support this, in case of zimbra it is postfix that uses ldap lookups to route the incoming mail.

    currently white/blacklisting is not integrated into zimbra, although I believe it's a targetted enhancement (ie due fairly soon in future release). it is possible - i have sqlgrey and amavis hooked up to sql with a custom frontend for this stuff.

    its the default setup, all built in. you add aliases in using the admin console (port 7071), everything is immediate - as soon as you add in/remove an alias it will be active/deleted immediately.

    oh, sorry - I meant we use email wildcard addresses.
    Eg, plc_*@domain.com
    and the asterisk can be anything the user likes, and it's redirected to their inbox.

    It's not possible "as is" in Zimbra.

    I (on my own) don't like this at all as it creates lots of CatchAll accounts and brings thousands of spams to come in (before you block the spammed alias).

    Shoot, too bad. It's a really handy feature - our users love it.
