Redirect all outgoing email messages
Hi, I've looked through the forum but haven't found any thread related to this topic.
The problem: I would like all outgoing email on my Ubuntu server to be redirected to one email address. I don't have any mail server installed yet (I'll probably use postfix unless you have another suggestion).
The reason I would like this to work is because I'm a web developer working on multiple projects. When I start working on a new project I would like to be able to test some of the forms and features in the web application (PHP) without having emails sent to the email address configured in the application. I can always change configurations but this would save me lots of trouble.
Please let me know if this is possible. If you need any additional information feel free to let me know.

I'm not an email expert. I was just looking for the many unanswered questions on this forum.
So, here's a thought. Can't you do that with dns? If it was form to http, a line on /etc/hosts saying example.com is, say, 127.0.0.1 will do, I think (?).
That or similar will not do for mail: post actions?

The issue I'm having is that the list of emails could be large (2000+) so I would need some soft of wildcard for all email addresses on any domain name.
This would be on my development server so all emails sent by the server do not need to go to be go outside my LAN network.
I'm still not sure of the solution. My server also has DNS server installed if anyone knows a wildcard mx record.

Allow me to be a bit basic. Apologies in advance.
Don't you have a routine that process the form and sends the email?
Can't you add a
if ($global_var_test) then
//change the destination to your local email. And maybe add the testing destination to the subject?
Trying to help, I have to ask
PS: Thanks, scathefire, for your reply.
