# to capture the to/from/cc/bcc info:
you can either log those headers in the mail_logs for extraction, or send a BCC of the original message to some mail box and do the processing of those headers offline with a parsing tool.

# in regards to your dictionary questions:
32 dictionaries max - with 1000 entries per dictionary.

Het Garfield,

If I understand your question right you want to capture a certain set of mail addresses and forward those to a BCC address.

First of all, do some reading on the difference of the envelope and the header of a message: The to: and cc: fields are always the header fields (bcc: is never recorded in the header). The envelope is the actual mail routing and addressing info. (The magic of BCC is to hide a recipient from the header while having it noted in the envelope). Since the envelope does not care is someone is To: CC: or BCC: the best way to go is using the envelope for those checks.

I believe Ironport uses the envelope by default for its mail policies, so that would we OK for your purpose.

If you need help or more explanation, just post if on this topic!
