    Nope - Sarah received just the one message.

    I thought that was strange and sent myself an email, adding my address three times to the recipient list - I too only received the one message.

    So I'm guessing exim works in the same way for forwarders - if it is addressed to multiple recipients that end up being the same destination, only one message is received.

    Could anyone possibly confirm this ?

    Confirmed on cPanel 11.18.3-R21703

    Multiple forwarders setup to one destination mailbox -> only one message will be received if it was addressed to multiple addresses that are forwarded to this mailbox.

    In this single message, the "Envelope-to:" header will contain both emailaddresses, even if they were both in the Bcc field with another 3th recipient in To:

    I don't really know if this is behaviour that should be (optionally) different in exim, but it does seem to brake the setup of having multiple forwarders to a central mailbox which is then retrieved by a mailserver.

    I'd be happy to know if anyone has been thinking/fixing a way around this.
