enrol an editor

I have 2 journals … I registered a person as an editor on one of the journals with a specific email for the journal…. I want to enroll the same person (with the same user name in both of the journals ) as an editor on the other journal but with different email (specific for the second journal) … please how can I do that …..
In other words: I want to enroll a person as an editor in 2 journals with the same account but with different emails

Hope to hear from you soon

Hi Nidaa,

Unfortunately, OJS only allows for a single email address per user account. However, depending on how much system-level access you have, it becomes possible to accomplish this sort of thing using your email server and a tool like procmail. If I was doing what you were attempting to do, I'd create a procmail rule that matched on an email subject, looking for the journal abbreviation (e.g. [MYJOURNAL]), and then forwarded the email to a different address.
