Incoming From: Mail Rewrites

Optionally rewrite incoming From: mail addresses using these rules.

This feature is useful when your users have slightly varying email addresses. For instance, people's email addresses might sometimes say "bob@somewhere.com" and other times say "bob@mail.somewhere.com". This feature lets you rewrite an email address so that it becomes something else.

On each line, specify the string to search for, a space, and then the replacement string. The process is a simple search and replace. If the first string is found, then it is replaced with the second string.

You can specify as many rewrites as you like, each on a separate line.

For example: "@mail.acme.com @acme.com" would cause the email address jane@mail.acme.com to be rewritten to jane@acme.com.

The incoming mail rewrites only apply mail coming into (being delivered to) Lyris. Outgoing mail addresses are not affected.
