Answer:

Email piping means redirecting email that are coming to an email address to a php/cgi script.

EXIM MAIL SERVER

Open file — /etc/valiases/yourdomain.com

Assuming that we are setting up support@yourdomain.com,
sales@yourdomain.com, billing@yourdomain.com we will create the corresponding entries in the file as follows:

support@yourdomain.com: “|/full_path_to/manage/pipe.php”
sales@yourdomain.com: “|/full_path_to/manage/pipe.php”
billing@yourdomain.com: “|/full_path_to/manage/pipe.php”

Save the alias file and run this command on shell – newaliases This will add the alias file.
