    This question applies to the "Mail" control panel. Is there a way to enter multiple recipients of a forwarder without entering each one separately, perhaps by editing a file or running a script? Is there no way to import a few hundred forwarders?

    The forwarders and default address are saved in /etc/valiases/client_domain_name.com. It is a simple text file that the root user can edit directly via SSH.

    multiple forwarders

    Stefaans,

    I should have mentioned that I am not a hosting company. I am an end-user who doesn't have access to THE /etc direcotry of course. Using File Manager, I can see that there is an etc/domain-name directory in our root directory, but I didn't see anything in there except for passwd, shadow, and quota files. I don't suppose I could place a forwarding file there and have it magically augment or override the one in THE etc folder.

    Thanks for the reply,

    John

    You can enter comma seperated lists.
