How can I keep backup of all incoming message and outgoing message user-wise?

Roberto Alsina, Chinmoy Barua,


For a user's incoming mail it's simple. 
Just add a line in his .qmail file sending a copy of his mail 
somewhere else (for example another account). 
For his outgoing mail, it's harder, and will never be 100% effective, 
because he can send his mail through another smtp server. 
But, if you really want to try, you could enable msglog (you need a 
patch), which logs all email passing through the server, then filter 
and keep the messages that mention this user's address.
