We use qmail on all our mail servers.

As users, you can use Sendmail style ".forward" files, but we encourage you to use ".qmail" files as this mechanism is native to qmail and has more features. (See the dot-qmail HOWTO)

  • Some group aliases are maintained like students, faculty, prjstf etc. It is sometimes possible that a person appears in two or more of these group aliases. Receiving more than one copy of the same mail is irritating and hence a soulution has been implemented which eliminates duplicate mails. The message-id of the mail is used to detect duplicates.
  • In an effort to reduce spam, we have put a script which discard mails coming from outside the "" domain. This is currently installed for the following aliases: all, students, rs, mtech03. mtech04, prjstf, staff
