Archive All Incoming & Outgoing Mails in Zimbra / Postfix
My friend using Zimbra at his office asked me that if there’s any possibilities to keep all incoming and outgoing mails of all users in separate location where his boss can see the mails while users are unaware of it 😀
After few Google searches I found the solution. It basically auto bcc all inbound and outbound emails to specified email account. Also this would support on all Postfix based email systems. Here’s how to do it.
Login to terminal and run these command as zimbra user
su – zimbra
Edit postfox config file
Below last line of the main.cf add the following line
always_bcc = firstname.lastname@example.org
This is it. Now you can see all in and out emails copied to the inbox.
Further you can create a filter to separate outgoing mails to different folder. Go to Preferences -> Filters and create a new filter looks like figure below. Or you can do the same with an email client like Outlook & Thunderbird.
