    Can you edit the file for forwarding? Which is it and where is it located? I need to change one of the addresses for several addresses and I would have to delete and recreate 110 of these accounts. It would be easier to do a find/replace and simply replace all instances in a text file for forwarding or do an update to a database. Does anyone know how to accomplish this?

    The email forwarders are stored in /etc/valiases/ and the files are named for the domains. For example, /etc/valiases/domain.com would be the file with the forwarders for domain.com.
