How do I allow users to enter aliases outside the domain they are a part of?

Cause: Due to security issues a user can only create an alias for a name within their domain.  Thus john@domain1.com could not create an alias for john@domain2.com.

Solution:

To enable this feature you must edit the following file:

/usr/admserv/cgi-bin/.cobalt/siteUserEmail/siteUserEmail.cgi

Look for the line shown here:

if( $aliasDomain && ( $domainName!~/.$aliasDomain$/ &&
$domainName ne
$aliasDomain ) ) { $badAlias=1; }

Comment out the line. The line should now look like this:

# if( $aliasDomain && ( $domainName!~/.$aliasDomain$/ && $domainName ne $aliasDomain ) ) { $badAlias=1; }

This disables all checking on the e-mail alias. Just be sure that people don’t try to intercept mail for other sites on that RaQ.
