Question

E-mail piping with postfix-mysql?

Posted July 21, 2014 1.6k views

Firstly, I am a noob when it comes to server management… I am still learning and now I am stuck on setting up a mail server… One thing I am uncertain of is how to pipe e-mails to a bash script with postfix-mysql. I followed this tutorial. So should this work if I add ’/home/something-script.sh’ as the destination in the forwardings table?

Thanks!

Try adding this line to /etc/aliases:

user "| /path/to/script.sh"

Then, run sudo newaliases. Does that work?
