I willstick with sendmail and FBSD at least for my DNS machine and my laptop. Using virtusertable as per your example at least I know how to get my mail routed to ethos if tao decied to take another "trap". > > Note that splitting delivery within a domain like this is generally > undesirable compared with setting up a central mailhost and using > IMAP to read the mail from the clients, rather than trying to deliver > mail to individual client machines.

Missed virtusertable.db, and just read the Makefile and found the maps: target. ...This has been a learning experience and I thank you gentlemen. gary > > -- > -Chuck > -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public service Unix _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
