Plugins - Mail Alias
Category: Miscellaneous

This plugin will allow a user to set up email aliases for their account. Currently it assumes that both main account and forwarding information are held in a database such as MySQL or PostgreSQL. It also assumes that a user's id is their full email address of the form [USERNAME]@[DOMAIN].

Version 2.0.0

[ mail_alias-2.0.0-1.4.4.tar.gz tarball (8515 d/l) Help ]
Requires: PEAR.DB


Major rewrite to use PEAR.DB database abstraction layer. Should now work with any database supported by PEAR.DB. Tested with MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite.

Moved SQL statements from the code to the config file.

Provided the possibility of keeping Aliases and Identities synchronized. That is when adding an Alias a matching Identity may be added; or when deleting an Alias all matching Identities may be deleted. When matching the Alias is compared to the "E Mail Address:" field used by the Identity.

Added Spanish translation.

Version 1.6

[ mail_alias-1.6-1.4.3.tar.gz tarball (5601 d/l) Help ]
Requires: SquirrelMail 1.4.3


This plugin allows several email addresses to be accepted into a single account. That is many emails, each to a different email address, end up in a single Mail-box.
Aliases are thus email addresses having no separate email store of their own whose emails will be delivered into a user's single main account.
