Bulk Email Alias/Forwarder Setup

I’m moving my email from dreamhost for reference.

I use a rather large number of email alias/forwarders (>100). I can easily get a text list with each line being “forwardaddress@domain account@domain”. Is there any way to easily add these forwards in bulk?

The add forwarder tab in the panel works fine for adding individual forwards. There is a legacy mode tab which I think might permit bulk adds, but can’t find any information on how it wants information formatted.

Is there any way to easily add a bunch of forwards at once?

Great question!

I can’t think of a great way for a user to add these in bulk with DirectAdmin. The API doesn’t seem to support it so you can’t just loop through that.

If you get me a list in the correct format, one for each domain that you will need it on (each domain has it’s own alias file), I can add it manually. Here’s a look at the format:

I created a forwarder for test@jarland.me to jarland@gmail.com:

test: jarland@gmail.com

You can reach me on chat.mxroute.com and you’d be able to upload files to me privately there.
