Qmail redirect mail box to another one with .Qmail file dolphin artistic logo

QMail (Considered to be the most secure Mail server out there whose modified version is running on Google – Gmail.com and Mail Yahoo! and Yandex EMail (SMTP) servers, nowadays has been highly neglected and considered obsolete thus most people prefer to use postfix SMTP or EXIM but still if you happen to be running a number of qmail old rack Mail servers (running a bunch of Email addresses and Virtual Domains straight on the filesystem – very handy by the way for administration much better than when you have a Qmail Mail server configured to store its Mailboxes within MySQL / PostgreSQL or other Database server – because simple vpopmail configured to play nice with Qmail and store all user emails directly on Filesystem (though considered more insecure the email correspondence can be easily red, if the server is hacked it is much better managable for a small and mid-sized mailserver) or have inherited them from another sys admin and you wonder how to redirect a single Mailbox:

(under domain lets say domain's email  my-server1.com should forward to to SMTP domain my-server-whatever2.com (e.g. your-email-username@server-whatever1.com is supposed to forward to your-email-username2@server-whatever2.com).
To achieve it create new file called .qmail

Under the Qmail or VirtualDomain location for example:

/var/qmail/mailnames/myserver1.com/username/.qmail

 

e.g
 

root@qmail-server:~# vim /var/qmail/mailnames/myserver1.com/your-email-username/.qmail
&your-email-username@server-whatever1.com

your-email-username@example1.com
/home/vpopmail/domains/server-whatever2.com/your-email-username/Maildir/


!!! NOTE N.B. !!! the last slash / after Maildir (…Maildir/) is important to be there otherwise mail will not get delivered
That's all now send a test email, just to make sure redirection works properly, assuming the .qmail file is created by root, by default the file permissions will be with privileges root:root.

Note
 

That shouldn't be a problem at all. That's all now enjoy emails being dropped out to the second mail 🙂

 

Few little SEO tips on indexing a website / webpage in a better fashion (Through usage of robots.txt and sitemap.xml)

Monday, December 28th, 2009

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post it’s of vital value to have your website W3C compliant.
I’m trying to learn something more about SEO this days and therefore I found a website dedicated to
Search Engine Optimization discussing the importance of having the robots.txt file in each and every hosted
domain as well as the huge importance of generating sitemap for every web page out there in the Net.
More about robots.txt can be learned fromabout robots.txt’s website
Here is a straigh forward robots.txt I choose to use to enable indexing of website without any restrictions
# Allow allUser-agent: *Disallow:It was kinda of handy for me to learn more about sitemaps on sitemaps.org
In few words sitemaps are used to better map content on a website as every SEO out there knows.
Here is a sample sitemap from the sitemap.xml I’ve generated for pc-freak.net’s entry page
http://pc-freak.net/ 2009-12-27T15:28:49+00:00 1.00There are plenty of both online and standalone sitemap.xml generators on the net.
I’ve choosed to use an online service to generate my sitemap.xml after which I modified
the entries in the generated file manually.
I’ve also given a try to google-sitemapgen from the bsd port tree, howeverI wasn’t able to use that soft to generate any sitemaps.
One of the most used and probably honoured project on sitemap generating is Google’s sitemap Generator, checkin Google for further info.
Another handy tip that helps indexing in search engines is including:
Sitemap: http://pc-freak.net/sitemap.xmlin the robots.txt file, so after inclusion robots.txtwould look alike.# Allow allUser-agent: *Disallow:Sitemap: http://pc-freak.net/sitemap.xml

Maybe things are getting better

There was a divine grace the last few days a little more than ordinary. We have already started in the college currently we study a discipline called “Introduction to Business” with a teacher from holland called Job. It’s interesting attending Job’s lectures. The holland teachers do teach in a much funny playful way. My passion for computers is starting to come back, and it’s very interesting to do things related to comps. My love for freebsd also increases on a daily basis. Two days ago. We installed FreeBSD in Niki’s (a.k.a. Nomen’s brother). Niki is a wonderful person. I decided to install him the latest FreeBSD-CURRENT which currently is 7.0 CURRENT. We had experienced some problems with the boot loader (not installing properly in the MBR due to my mistake). After that most of the basic configuration was complete after 5 hours. Yesterday and today I and Niki did some extra installation of software and settings. Also yesterday I was in the cousin of my Father, Zlatina (A wonderful person a, a wonderful husband, a wonderful child fascinating.) I hope some day maybe God would bless me with such a blessing. After I have installed them there new DVD/RW drive. They have setup dinner and we ate and speak about God/ Europe USA, the best place to live and a lot of “Is there God”. I told them how I believed how God found me etc because I felt I have to do. The food was great the company of Zlati and Ivo was great just great. Also I don’t have much of a work on the servers which gives me a lot of free time currently. PRAISE BE TO GOD ofcourse for all this he blesses me! Blessed, Blessed, Blessed Are you Lord Glory Be to You! 🙂 END—–
