From: "Silvan Jegen" <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Email address aliases Date: Sat, 06 Jul 2019 23:02:10 +0200 Message-ID: <3CPF2KFLU5TP7.242WO6ROBA9PE@homearch.localdomain> (raw) Heyho Ideally I don't want to type out people's whole email addresses when composing emails. My first thought was to use an alias file with my SMTP client (msmtp). This works fine for sending emails, except that the aliases are not replaced in the mail headers. That means if a person replies to all people in a mail from me, and the CC header contains an alias like 'friend1', the email addressed to 'friend1' one will never arrive since it's not a valid email address. Currently I am using a new approach where I simply run 'sed' over the headers of an email at composiition time to replace all my aliases with the proper email addresses. I feel like there should be a more elegant solution to this (involving 'msed' being invoked before passing an email to the sendmail program perhaps?). Is there an easy way to get simple email address aliases working that I am missing? Cheers, Silvan -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "mblaze" group.
