    Ok lets say I have and and they're both mailboxes.

    The catchall's goes to

    If someone sends an email to I want something along this (haven't checked this script works!!):

    if ($recipients: contains ""
    or $recipients: contains "") then
    headers add "X-Mail: Mailbox"
    headers add "X-Mail: Forwarder"
    headers add "X-CA: Yes"

    The problem is I dont want to have to add mailboxes to tell the script which mailboxes are mailboxes or if they are fowarders/catchall's etc etc

    Anyone with a far better knowledge of exim have any pointers?

    The aim is to have the fact the email was caught was because it was a catch all (and most likely to be junk, but i don't want it in my inbox, with the header info, it can be put into a lower priority folder, leaving my inbox to be stuff sent to, and i'd rather not have a catchall mailbox which i'll forget to check.
