Multiple domains, coming into one box.
Some times, the same user name exists in multiple domains.
So far, I have been creating unix users for everyone who needs a POP/IMAP
account, and where I had username conflicts, I have appended numbers, and
used aliases at the virtual level.
email@example.com -> firstname.lastname@example.org
email@example.com -> firstname.lastname@example.org
I use Maildirs.
For various reasons, this method is a major PITA.
However, in looking at home_mailboxes, and other settings and docs, I
don't see any way to create virtual users. The method I have thought of,
but haven't yet found a way to create (all would be solved, if file
delivery from virtual maps was possible, arrg), is this:
Gets delivered to:
Of course, then I have to find a way to get Dovecot-IMAP, to access
mailboxes based upon the domain upon which the connection originated, and
to read passwords accordingly, but I may be able to do that with MYSQL, or
another IMAP package (ideas welcome).
1. Is this the best way to do this?
2. Is there a way to do this if it is?
3. Any other/better ideas on how to solve this problem?
