I have set up a Postfix mail server which uses Courier in order to provide an SMTP service. On my server there is a user called
I used alias maps to make mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org redirect to
test: joe in my
/etc/aliases. Seeing as there is just one email address and one domain, I don’t want to use MySQL to manage aliases as this seems to be a massive overkill for my scenario.
I have two questions…
- People can send mail to
email@example.com well as
firstname.lastname@example.org it will still go to the account
joe. I don’t particularly want this, primarily as I am worried people could start spamming system user accounts. Is there a way to disable this?
- When I use Courrier-IMAP to login to IMAP, is there a way I can login with
email@example.com my username rather than
joe? I would not like to create a user called
testif at all possible.
