What has to be done to get the mailer is Slackware 1.2.13 to process the
.forward files in the users directories correctly? Everything else
seemsto work correctly but the .forward files dont work.

E-mail me or post it here.

It seems to me that the best new ideas come from
people who don't know that they "can't".  -- Paul Mathews,


1. Linux 1.2.13, BIND, & sendmail 8.7 mail store & forwarding for non-ip domains

I am looking to provide internet dial up mail services for 4 of my non
IP connected friends.

I am running Linux, BIND and sendmail.  

They all wish to have their own .com domain.

They all require me to be their email forwarder.

I set up one such test person today as a test seeing if I can store
mail on my server.

After setting up a DNS entry for them and then sending mail to that

shortly there after returned a message indicating that the MX record
for pointed back to my server.

How do I go about setting up a DNS entry or sendmail config that will
allow for me to become a mail store and forwarder for my friends?
