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 [email protected]
 unseen deliver [email protected]

(reference: http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/outgoing-mails-copy-39909.html)

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).

    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!

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

Edit: /etc/postfix/main.cf 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:

[email protected] [email protected]
[email protected] [email protected]

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@).
