With the catch-all account in place, I have sent an email from a third
party address to an email account that will not be recognised by the ISP
and therefore should land in the catch-all account. This happens
successfully, *but* when you look at the headers, there are two
'Delivered-To' fields in the header. It looks like the email is
arriving at the ISP for the intended recipient and then being forwarded
onto the catch-all account. So when fetchmail brings down email, it uses
the latest user account - which is the catch all account rather than
the intended recipient. The local qmail server then cannot find the
account gets bounced. I think that this is a qmail config error at the
ISP. Can anyone confirm that my thought process are correct? How do I go
about tackling the ISP with this one? I have no idea where to start. So
some pointers would be appreciated.
Sounds like a config error at the ISP, however...
We would need to see headers from an email showing this.
Does it happen for every email that arrives in the catch-all account?
