Module mailconf: aliases co-administrator

Co-administrator may handle email aliases now. But they can't alter the field "filter program" or "list file". Only root is allowed to do that. Co-administrator could use those facility to grab more privileges...

The aliases may be modified for virtual email domains from the web interface. Enter web mode and visit the "special entries" link to find out.

Virtual email domain co-administrator

You can assign a special co-administrator password to a virtual email domain. You simply turn a check-box on in the vdomain creation dialog and enter the password. This password is not related to any user account (real or virtual), but to a pseudo administrator called admin@the-domain. So if you create a new vdomain called foo.com and turn the check-box on and assign a password, then the co-administrator may enter admin@foo.com to administer the virtual email domain.

This is a nice way to delegate vdomain administration to the vdomain user/owner/customer without having to create a real user account.

Virtual email domain: fallback and aliases enhancements

When defining a fallback destination, you can use the | character to instruct vdeliver to pipe the message through a command

	| some command

The command may be defined using the following tokens:

A sample command has been created: /usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/sendsmtp. It performs SMTP message delivery without any domain/MX resolution.

This token replacement is also done in aliases pointing to a command (filter program).
