In SLS I had more mail ability for groups that I do in Lion.

I am now trying to find out how to do the following without much luck.


1.  Create a group mail alias (ie:  mailing list)

     - In the past, I just created a group account, and I could mail  without problem

     - Note:  I do not want -wiki on the mailing list and I don't want the wiki at all actually.


2.  Mail account redirects

     - In the past, when a person left, I would redirect their mail in WGM in the mail tab.  Simply select "Forward" and set the user it was to forward to.  This tab is no longer in WGM. 


Can anyone point me to the right place?  I have been searching the docs, but no luck so far.



Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

    For #1:


    Mailman is probably the easiest way to get a mail list (group mail) setup without using a wiki to do so.  It's in Server Admin --> Mail --> Settings --> Mailing Lists.  You can open up the users and groups list and just drag people into the list.  It'll setup a "Mailman" box first, which needs to be there, and then you can setup whatever mailing lists you need.  Emails to these addresses are formatted as <list_name>  It's actually more of a full-fledged subscribe/unsubscribe type list, but it'll do the job.


    For #2:


    Kind of the long way around, but you could log into their webmail account and setup the rule there.

    Cool!  How would you configure the redirect using that method?  I'd like to try it.

    Got it.  Thanks.


    Since a lot of the 10.6 functionality is still actually in 10.7 (just inaccessible via GUI), it sure would be nice if Apple would release a 10.7 Advanced Server Tools for those who wish to have more control over their servers (without having to resort to using command line).
