You don't need all those options and features, the basic setting
is fine for most configurations.
If you feel the urgent wish to send me a courtesy copy of a Usenet
posting, then make sure it's recognizable as such!

I am in the process of redesigning our mail setup and would
like some advice. I am moving to 8.6.5 so I figure this is
the time to do it.
We have one file server that supports all our sun workstations.
/var/spool/mail is mounted from the file server by all workstations.
We also have one time share machine that the remaining users use
and where they receive mail.
I would like all out going mail to look like it came from
aoc.nrao.edu not machine.aoc.nrao.edu. I don't think this will
be a problem. I would also like all the workstations to
just relay the mail to the file server which will act as
the mail host/relay. I haven't got this working yet.
Since the time share and file server are the second
mx for each other I would like them to be able to accept
mail for each other in the event one is down and something
gets sent to the wrong machine.
File server and time share send mail with from address
of aoc.nrao.edu. The file server is aoc.nrao.edu and the second
mx is the time share. Have all the workstations use
the clientproto.cf and send everything to the file server.
