CommuniGate Pro
Version 6.4


CommuniGate Pro Domains can contain Forwarder objects. A Forwarder is an E-mail address associated with the Forwarder name. All E-mail messages and Signals directed to the Forwarder name are rerouted to the Forwarder address.

Forwarders work exactly as the Router alias records. A Forwarder jim in the Domain containing the james@otherdomain.dom address acts as the following Router record:

Relay:<> =

Forwarders allow the Server administrator to keep the Router table small.

Forwarders can be set by Domain Administrators, while the Router can be modified by the Server Administrator only.

A Server Administrator with the Can Modify All Accounts And Domain Settings access right can create, update, rename, and remove Forwarders in any Domain.

Domain Administrators can create, update, rename, and remove Forwarders in their Domains if they have the CanCreateForwarders access right.
