It would be interesting to have also aliases listed in fetchmail rules.
That way, we could fetch email from one account and dispatch to mutliple mailboxes.
Let me think about this a bit - even if I understand your request, it is a call for trouble (like using an alias as target that sends the mail back to the external address, where it must be fetched again).
Only offering mailboxes as targets mostly avoids this problem.
However there is a workaround - every mailbox has an alias. If you edit this alias, you can add more than one target address and get the behaviour you want.
Thanks for your reply.
I think my setup looks like your workaround. In my case I have this kind of setup:
- firstname.lastname@example.org which is an alias to robert + susan
where mydomain.tld is my local postfix. So here, the alias is done for local delivery but I understand your point if the domain would have been anotherdomain.tld.
By the way, I found a workaround which is to insert manually email@example.com in the fetchmail table. But it's still less practical than selecting firstname.lastname@example.org in "Fetch email -> New entry -> Mail box" ;-)
