    Hi all,
    I'm having troubles in making a content_filter for postfix for mail
    archiving.
    My filter works like this:

    - Postfix passes the mail in pipe
    - The mail is saved on a spool directory
    - The script parses all parameters (sender and recipient)
    - The mail is saved in a directory (e.g. /var/foo/user), and if it doesn't
    exist, it creates it
    - The mail is sent back to postfix via "sendmail" command

    I call the filter in master.cf with the following line:

    arch    unix    -       n       n       -       -       pipe
      flags=Rq user=filter argv=/etc/postfix/filter/archivizione.pl -f
    ${sender} --
    ${recipient}

    The problem is that this postfix also handles mailing lists specified in
    /etc/aliases with the aid of mailman
    e.g.:

    test:              "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman post test"
    team:              "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman post team"
    hello:                   "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman post hello"

    If an email is sent to a mailing list, the filter instead of archiving it
    in each user's maildir, archives in a directory that calls
    ""

    Any suggestions to solve this?

    Thanks in advance
