I am working on enabling an archive of all e-mail on our small business' 10.6.8 e-mail server.  I was thrilled to find the "Copy All Mail To:" option in Server Admin.  I setup an archive account, and entered it in the copy all mail to section of server admin. The problem I am having is that this setting is sending 2 copies of each e-mail the system processes to the e-mail address I specify.


I have found several discussions saying the fix for this is to add the following line to /etc/postfix/


receiveoverrideoptions = noaddressmappings


I have successfully added this to my (made a backup first) also successfully issued the "sudo postfix reload" command afterwards.


But still I am seeing 2 of each incoming and outgoing message relayed to my Archive e-mail address.  Any ideas on what I am missing?

    Personally, I put this in the file. As an addition to the existing no_header_body_checks so (probably last line in file) looks like...

  inet n  -       y       -       -       smtpd

      <other stuff here>

       -o receive_override_options=no_header_body_checks,no_address_mappings


    DOn't know which location would be preferred though.
