alias_translator — Alias resolution plugin for delivery(8gx)
alias_translator is a mail transfer agent hook plugin which rewrites the envelope FROM and RCPT addresses of mails and replaces aliases by their respective primary addresses.
Alias mappings are read from state_path/alias_addresses.txt, whereby state_path is the eponymous directive from the program that loaded the plugin. The alias_address.txt file constitutes a caching mechanism and is normally generated from MySQL data by adaptor(8gx). The adaptor process is also the one triggering the reload in alias_translator(4gx) via delivery(8gx)’s telnet console mechanism.
