Postfix and Blink Carbon Copying

We have a policy and the Fed's mandate it (if you're involved in a Federal lawsuit you must follow this) of keeping all incoming and outgoing email related to the corporation.

We do this using Postfix's BCC configuration as follows

In your /etc/postfix/main.cf
#ZHB ADDED THE FOLLOWING PER FEDERAL GUIDLINES
sender_bcc_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sender_bcc
recipient_bcc_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/recipient_bcc

Then in /etc/postfix/sender_bcc
mailbox@domain.com tobcc@offsitedomain.com

Then in /etc/postfix/recipient_bcc
mailbox@domain.com tobcc@offsitedomain.com

Then run the following
postmap recipient_bcc
postmap sender_bcc

Then run
postfix reload

You're all set - I LOVE Linux!!!
