Each CC-IN2P3 UNIX account is associated with an electronic mail address such as firstname.lastname@example.org . If no forwarding address has been configured, electronic mails are delivered in the AFS space (/afs/in2p3.fr/mail directory tree), and are accessible from the interactive farm ccali.in2p3.fr using mail readers such as pine or mutt.
2. End of AFS mail space
As from June 2nd 2008 mail delivery in the AFS space will be permanently stopped. The AFS directory tree "/afs/in2p3.fr/mail" will still remain available after the shutdown of the AFS mail.
Electronic address like email@example.com will still remain valid for each UNIX account. Users are invited to change their mail forward now.
3. Mail forwarding
Mail forwarding can be configured using the email command line on ccali.in2p3.fr interactive platform.
# display mail forward configuration
email = None
# mail forward configuration
$ email -p firstname.lastname@example.org
Your new email adress will be effective only tomorrow.
Then, any mail to email@example.com will be redirected to the
new email adress you've choosen, firstname.lastname@example.org
email = email@example.com
As from may 5th 2008 , users will be asked to configure their forwarding address when logging in ccali.in2p3.fr interactive service.
