Hi, If I am posting to the wrong list, please let me know. The doc for qmail-tap reads to post questions to the vpopmail list, the vpopmail doc reads to post questions to this list, so here I am!
We recently did a test of qmail-tap, and there was some of unexpected behavior. Some of it was corrected with changing the taps file, but some it would appear to require a code change. For example, the doc for the taps control file reads: "To tap an individual email address and send a copy to [EMAIL PROTECTED] add a line like: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:[EMAIL PROTECTED]" That is actually a bad example, because it will result in multiple matches. The user we tested was '[EMAIL PROTECTED]'. That tap line then matched '[EMAIL PROTECTED]', '[EMAIL PROTECTED]', etc. Since it's a regex match, it matched *all* addresses ending in '[EMAIL PROTECTED]'. The example should use "[EMAIL PROTECTED]:[EMAIL PROTECTED]". The "^" means "starts with", and will enforce only exact matches. That was easy enough, but another problem we encountered I just don't know. Using again the example of the '[EMAIL PROTECTED]' user, when she would send an e-mail to multiple recipients on the 'To' line, or a mix of 'To', 'Cc' and 'BCc' lines, the qmail-tap patch would generate one tapped copy for every recipient. That presents no problem from the legal standpoint, but from a more practical disk space usage standpoint, it is a big waste of space. Also, qmail-tap matches both on the 'From' and the 'To', so yet another copy is generated. Thanks, Ted
