Pipe incoming Emails to a Script

Some times you want to setup all incoming emails to be piped to a script.

To do this, you will need to create a file like .qmail-redirect in the domain folder, this would be for the user

vim /home/vpopmail/domains/

and insert the following to pipe all incoming email to emailscanner.php

| /usr/bin/php -f /var/www/html/.emailscanner.php

Check Permisson on your Mail Pipe file

You will need to adjust the permission on the file 600 and ownership to vpopmail.username and then restart qmail.

chown vpopmail.briansnelsoncom /home/vpopmail/domains/
chmod 600 /home/vpopmail/domains/

Restart Qmail

/etc/init.d/smtp restart

or if you have the qmailctl installed

qmailctl restart
