I've been working on a modified version of the mail_fwd-plug in
which allowes a user to forward all mail and keep a local copy.
Currently my plug in only works with Courier-MTA (maybe qmail as
well I don't know if they have similar syntax in there dot-files).
In Couririer this is done by adding the line:
at the end (where ./Maildir is the local mail directory).
As far as I know this can't be done in standard .forward-files.
I also did some changes to the wfwd program so that only a specific user
can run it (decided at compile time). Like the suexec-wrapper in Apache.
(And some other things like geting the home-dir from the passwd-file.)
My question is:
Should I fork the current mail_fwd and create a new plug in ?
Or should I do some rework on my solution so that it becomes a install time
option (in the old plug in), if you want to enable the "save copy" function
and what line that should be added in the .forward-file ?
(Having it disabled by default)
An additional question who is the mail_fwd maintainer ?
The readme file states Ritchie Low, but the Plug in-page at SquirrelMail.org
states Tyler Akins.
