Setting up Postfix to forward mail to gmail and keep a local copy with LDAP

Harder than it sounds. I think due to the setup I currently have (which I have not really changed since 2006) this isn't possible to do without changing my LDAP schema. That sounds like a lot of work, so I think I will just have to set up an alias and ditch the "keep a local copy of Grandma's email" and move to the "manage her password and every once in a while sync changes from her account for backup purposes."

So I hope you didn't reach this blog post hoping for changes to master.cf and LDAP query filters to work with JAMM (which seems to have been abandoned about two or three years back) because you aren't getting that. You are getting a mild rant about something that should be not too hard to do, but with the setup with JAMM (since it keys on the "mail" attribute, which is what I would change to add a second destintation) is a bit tough.

Also, I'm at Grandma's house.
