In regards to email archiving, How can I enable email journaling in Plesk?

OS               CentOS 6.4 (Final)
Panel version    11.5.30 Update #28

I've ready about editing /etc/antivirus.exim to do the following:

if $sender_address is
 unseen deliver


However, I do not see a file under /etc/ named antivirus.exim. I understand that link is referring to cPanel mainly, but maybe this will spark some ideas in the minds of plesk/linux users.

There isn't a settings option to enable email journaling/archiving in Plesk. You can write a chron script to archive them by date, however, how to do so depends on your OS and the mail server installed for Plesk (there's a choice as to which during installation). – dan Feb 1 '14 at 0:55
Looks like you updated this with your OS, and figured out below you've got Postfix installed (cPanel uses Exim). Thanks for adding what you've figured out too - nice job! – dan Feb 1 '14 at 22:58

For now, I've done this, and it seems to work. Weight in with your opinions.

Edit: /etc/postfix/ and add (I added at the end of the file)

sender_bcc_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sender_bcc

Then create a new file: /etc/postfix/sender_bcc and add the following:

Then run the command postmap /etc/postfix/sender_bcc && postfix reload

It routes a copy of all outgoing mail from the first column of email addresses (from@) to the second column of email addresses (to@).
