Hello to all

One of my customers reported that he receives the same email multiple times. He has set up 4 email forwarders from his email [email protected] to [email protected], [email protected]... etc (same hosting account)

After investigating exim mail logs I noticed that indeed exim regards A,B,... as aliases on [email protected]:

Code:
2019-06-24 12:11:44 1hfL0p-00022T-6N <= ---emailid---- H=-----sending host------ P=esmtps X=---ciphers---- CV=no S=109472 id=----email-id--- T="......." for [email protected]
2019-06-24 12:11:44 1hfL0p-00022T-6N => info <[email protected]> R=virtual_user T=dovecot_virtual_delivery C="250 2.0.0 <[email protected]> GKvZEtCTEF2EHQAAhNgn1w Saved"
2019-06-24 12:11:44 1hfL0p-00022T-6N -> A ([email protected]) <[email protected]> R=virtual_user T=dovecot_virtual_delivery C="250 2.0.0 <[email protected]> GKvZEtCTEF2EHQAAhNgn1w:2 Saved"
2019-06-24 12:11:44 1hfL0p-00022T-6N -> B ([email protected]) <[email protected]> R=virtual_user T=dovecot_virtual_delivery C="250 2.0.0 <[email protected]> GKvZEtCTEF2EHQAAhNgn1w:3 Saved"
2019-06-24 12:11:44 1hfL0p-00022T-6N -> C ([email protected]) <[email protected]> R=virtual_user T=dovecot_virtual_delivery C="250 2.0.0 <[email protected]> GKvZEtCTEF2EHQAAhNgn1w:4 Saved"
2019-06-24 12:11:44 1hfL0p-00022T-6N -> D ([email protected]) <[email protected]> R=virtual_user T=dovecot_virtual_delivery C="250 2.0.0 <[email protected]> GKvZEtCTEF2EHQAAhNgn1w:5 Saved"
valiases file is like below
Why each forwarder sends a copy to source again?
