    Question BCC myself on all outgoing emails ?

    Hi,

    Is it possible to BCC myself on all outgoing emails ? I like to bcc myself on all emails I send, so when I send an email I get few seconds later email back so I know it's gone and I can archive it directly

    Thanks a lot

    If you do this, the mail will be delivered locally so the fact that you recieve it back means nothing. As for archiving it, the 'sent' mail box does that task?

    You could bcc yourself at a different offsite email address, but I still dont see the benefit, all you are testing if you do that, is your offsite address, not the intended recipient. The fact that you recieved it does not imply that they did also.

    I know it's not a confirmation of anything, it's just the way I like to work with my emails because I always forget to file my sent folder
    So is it possible to get an automatic BCC on all outgoing emails in Zimbra ?

    Thanks

    Initially I thought this was easy, but having looked at it, it may not be. You can get it so forward copies of mail you recieve to another account.

    You can also intercept all mail to another account, that;s inbound and outbound mail. That wont work becuase when you send a mail, you will recieve a copy by the intercept, then because you recieved that mail, you will recieve a copy of it, and after a moment or two, the server will have a heart attack!

    You can achieve what you need by means of a postfix hack or perhaps a custom zimlet, but as for an easy fix - I dont think there currently is one, sorry.

    Default always_bcc

    Postfix can Archive/copy all IN+OUT email to certain account you want.
    ** Please make sure its a LOCAL ACCOUNT to reduce load on server

    you can edit the following file:
    /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.7.5z/conf/main.cf

    and add the following line..with correct email id:
    always_bcc = allemail@yourdomain.com

    Restart zimbra...
    and you will get all email IN+OUT in that account..you can filter the emails of you like to keep only outbound email

    * after any upgrade these settings needs to be redone

    no.. its not possible..Always_BCC is global server level postfix setting.
    what you can do is create FILTER or FILTERS in the account where you sent all email
    you can create FILTER to file the mails on differnet folders based on domain or delete the emails for the domains you dont want the bcc for.

    this is best you can do..unless you want to pay and get Archiving solution in the network edition which can give you more flexibility

    ** VERY IMP **
    when you create any filters in the Always_bcc account DO NOT forward any emails to another account local or remote as FWD generates another email in postfix queue and it will create unlimited loop which will eventually result in total postfix failure.

    Hello,


    Is there a way to detect and block the loops.

    In fact, the problem comes from the fact that the forward rule, forwart the mail whitout any change.
    Is there a way to change this ?

    Thank you

    What is it you're actually trying to achieve and which version of Zimbra are you using?
    Regards

    In fact, I am running Zimbra 5.0.10_GA_2638 on SLES10.

    I want to set these services :
    - archive all message which can transit by the zimbra system
    - send a copy of each mail (in/out) for certain user to certain user (external user on another mail domain).


    The first point is accomplish by the always_bcc option. Every mail is send to an archives mailbox.

    I want to accomplish the second point by set up some filters rules (forward rules) on the archive mailbox. But, the forward rules create a mail loop in the Zimbra system (forwaded mail are also examine by the forward rule).

    In fact, I can't determine if a mail is a forwarded mail by the archive mailbox or an original mail. Indeed, the forwarded mail are forwarded without any change to the mail or any change that I can distinguish bye mail filter.

    If I can distinguish the two mails types , I could set a rule to ignore forwarded mail.

    Do you understand what I want ?

    (Sorry for my poor english, I'm french)

    Thank you
