Great :-)

I tend to use fdm because it lets you do really nice classification,
I encourage you to look at it for future uses !

I would like to try to stick to just smtpd, don't want to get in over
my head with too many moving parts that I don't understand :)

I did not know that was possible, thank you! I tested it and it does
exactly what I need it to, so I will go with this solution for now.

Have a great day,

Yeah this won't work like that:

The maildir mda takes the maildir root directory as a parameter, it'll
expect .Junk to be relative.

You have two methods to achieve what you want:

1- use a smarter mda, such as `fdm`, which allows you to specify where mails are
   supposed to be delivrered based on rules. in this case, you would simply have
   a rule that recipient address blog@ should land in .Blog

2- alias blog to admin+blog instead of admin, this way when smtpd extracts email
   extension, it will check if a .blog folder exists and deliver there if exists
   but this is more limited that a real classification.

Sort to different maildir subdirs based on recipient address?

2020-06-29 Thread Unicorn
Hello everyone,

I am a newbie to mail in general and opensmtpd in particular and I am
currently trying to figure out how to sort mail to various subdirs of
the maildir based on the address that an email was sent to.

So basically, this is my intended setup:

1. Somebody sends email to b...@mydomain.org
2. "blog" is an alias that forwards to a real "admin" account
3. In the maildir of "admin", the email goes to a subdir called "blog"

I looked through the the smtpd.conf(5) manpage and found the "match
action" directive, my thought was something like this:

action "sort_to_folder" maildir "~/Maildir/.Blog" alias 
match for rcpt-to "b...@mydomain.org" action "sort_to_folder"

But I found that with this setup, junk will not get removed, and if I
add "junk" after the custom directory, I believe it will end up in
"~/Maildir/.Blog/.Junk" instead of "~/Maildir/.Junk".

Is there a more elegant/smart solution that I am missing? I would be
happy to learn from you. :)

Best,
Unicorn
