    I have a virtually hosted account ( user ) on one of my servers. This account has about 10 emails, one of wich is script@domain.com. I'm trying to make exim forward any email sent to script@domain.com to a php script ( /home/usr/script.php ).
    After looking up some info, i found this had to be done using the /etc/aliases file. so in this file i have put &script: |/home/user/script.php&.
    When i send an email to script@domain.com, exim doesn't report any errors, but it just sends the email to the default user@domain.com account.
    Has anyone ever done this before on a machine running WHM? I would appreciate any feedback on this topic.
    Thanks.

    You should put this in the valias file for that domain.

    script@domain.com: |/home/user/script.php

    should I put that in the /etc/valias, or /etc/aliases?
