Hi, On my courier-mta installation I have a number of 'virtual domains'. One of the ways in which Courier implements virtual domains is to rewrite recipients to a 'user-ext', where 'user' is a local user and 'ext' turns into the local-part of the mailbox address (ie: email@example.com turns in to user-postmaster). The perl code I use to interface DCC with courier tells dccifd what the 'user' account is, for use with per-user log-dirs, whitelisting and settings. In practice, this means I have a per-domain 'log' directory created by dccifd. Unfortunately, some of my domains receive a lot of mail. Currently, my main domain is being forged in spam on a large enough scale that I get tens of thousands of backscatter bounces a day. This causes the log-directory for this domains 'user' account to grow so large that I've temporarily had to turn off logging for this domain - it's become unmanageable both via the cgi-scripts and directly manipulating the files, due to the size of the directory. So, my feature request is: please allow subdirectory prefixes to be specified for per-user log-directories. Thanks!
