Proper string for cPanel to pipe IMAP to Support

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out proper method to pipe IMAP to the support system.

please post a properly formatted string - seems when I save the path to pipe cPanel adds something in front or it needs to be quoted?

do you need to have real email accounts for this to work or can you create custom forwarders that pipe to a specific department?

You wouldn't pipe imap, you would pipe an email address, this is done using a forwarder actually, you create a forwarder, and the send too email address is your pipe address.

an example pipe address would be as follows, 

for 3.4.7

"| /home/user/public_html/interface/email/piping.php"

for 4.0

"| /home/user/public_html/applications/core/interface/incomingemail/piping.php"
