This file contains email archiving instructions-also known as tap/tapping. The taps file (empty, 0-byte file) is not included in the basic, default toaster install.
The tap-patch is in the toaster package, however...you just need to configure it by:
- touch /var/qmail/control/taps
- vi /var/qmail/control/taps
insert tap info and save.
a) To tap a whole domain add a line like: .*@domain.com:email@example.com ---'joe' gets a copy of all incoming and outgoing mail for the domain.
b) To tap an individual email address add a line like: firstname.lastname@example.org:email@example.com ---'other' gets a copy of all incoming and outgoing mail for 'user'
Inter7's documentation for taps can be found here.
man qmail-queue excerpt:
Should contain regex syntax of email addresses to tap and the associated email address to send the copy to. The two fields should be separated by a colon. Programs included with qmail which invoke qmail-queue will invoke the contents of $QMAILQUEUE instead, if that environment variable is set.
