CSL-MAIL.STANFORD.EDU Email Users

Special support for csl-mail has been configured so that any user of csl-mail1 can take advantage of DOEmail without having to create a new destination email address/account. We configure your existing email account to forward email to your doemail.org email address, once DOEmail has finished processing on the email it is then sent back to a special virtual email address known only to you that delivers the email to your csl-mail account.

Quick Setup for CSL-MAIL Email Users

  • Select a virtual address for DOEmail to use when sending clean email back to your account. If your existing email address is foo@csl-mail.stanford.edu, the format must be foo+ext@csl-mail.stanford.edu. Substitute what you want for ext, but it must consist of lower case letters and numbers, no spaces. IE: foo+doemail@csl-mail.stanford.edu

CSL-MAIL1.STANFORD.EDU Email Users

Special support for csl-mail1 has been configured so that any user of csl-mail1 can take advantage of DOEmail without having to create a new destination email address/account. We configure your existing email account to forward email to your doemail.org email address, once DOEmail has finished processing on the email it is then sent back to a special virtual email address known only to you that delivers the email to your csl-mail1 account.

Quick Setup for CSL-MAIL1 Email Users

  • Create virtual email address
    • ssh to csl-mail1.stanford.edu
    • execute from your home directory: touch .forward+clean (will create username+clean@csl-mail1.stanford.edu, you can replace clean with whatever other word you want)
      Do not put anything inside this file, it must remain empty to deliver email to this new virtual email address.
    • Test that your new address works by sending email to it (ie username+clean@csl-mail1.stanford.edu), if it does not please contact David Erickson or Charlie Orgish.
  • Register for your doemail.org account, using your newly created virtual email address for the "Destination Email Address" on the registration form
  • Confirm your new account via the email sent to your csl-mail1 address
  • Set up forwarding to your new doemail.org account
    • ssh to csl-mail1.stanford.edu
    • If foo@doemail.org was your doemail.org email address you would execute from your home directory:
      echo "foo@doemail.org" > .forward
  • Finish the Quick Start Guide beginning after the registration confirmation step

Example Configuration

Let's look at a concrete example. Assume my email address is foo@csl-mail1.stanford.edu. When an email arrives at the csl-mail1 server to that address, it is then forwarded to my doemail.org email address, foo@doemail.org. DOEmail then does its processing on the email, and clean email will then be forwarded back to a special virtual email address, foo+clean@csl-mail1.stanford.edu, which is then delivered and available for reading. This virtual email address is known only to me, and the text inbetween the + and @ can be changed if it somehow becomes known to spammers. IE it could just as easily be foo+pensacola@csl-mail1.stanford.edu, or any other combination of lowercase letters and numbers. Here is an image illustrating this process:
