    Hi,
    I would like to have 2 contact emails in Server Contact E-Mail Address.
    but "email1@domain.com,email2@domain.com" does not work.

    root@server [~]# /scripts/quotacheck
    warn [quotacheck] Invalid CONTACTEMAIL email detected: email1@domain.com,email2@domain.com

    Is there a special delimiter I am not aware of, or it simply no feasible?

    thanks!

    Hi,

    I would suggest you send it to an e-mail with a forwarder to the two setup on it. I don't believe support for multiple e-mails is built-in for quotas.

    Try setting up an account called "email" that forwards to email1 and email2... and just use "email" in the configs.

    Just thoughts for you since delimited addresses are obviously a challenge.

    Warmest regards,

    LiNUxG0d's suggestion of setting up a redirect address delivering to your two target email addresses would probably be the best way to do this.

    I did notice that you did not put a space after the comma in your original attempt to send to two addresses. It may be that the parser read the address as one single address. Then again, it might not work at all. I have not played enough with that one specifically to say without further testing.

    In my case, I usually do exactly the same thing LiNUxG0d said above or in a few cases setup a mailing list (a client once wanted everyone in his company to get a copy of all server alert messages so a mailing list worked better).
