I think i solved it: from: http://www.exim.org/exim-html-4.60/doc/html/filter.html#SECTex <http://www.exim.org/exim-html-4.60/doc/html/filter.html#SECTex> # Exim filter if $local_part_suffix contains "mytest-" and $local_part_suffix contains "-alex" then save $home/mail/alex_test endif and put it into a file called .forward anyone agree with this?

The documentation is very detailed and well written but Im on a short time budget and it would be great to find out how to configure exim to accept messages of a certain type with the flexiblity to handle wildcards but with also a fixed string. So we have something of the form: mytest*alex at deltatraffic.co.uk <mailto:mytest*alex at deltatraffic.co.uk> where * could be something like "-123772-" or "-234899-" or "-[n]-" Tried a few things but making something a bit more selective than a catch all account is proving difficult best Alex -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
