I have tried doing the forwarding via /etc/mail/aliases and it worked identically as it was with the /root/.forward. The mail does go through but gets delayed 5+ minutes, however when I send mail interactively using mailx or mail commands the receiving mailserver receives the message instantly.
I'd also like to add that if I restart sendmail via /etc/rc.d/sendmail restart the mail gets instantly received also...Thanks for the help thus far On Fri, Aug 15, 2008 at 6:22 PM, Derek Ragona < [EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > At 03:49 PM 8/15/2008, Tom Stuart wrote: > > I've been having trouble sending email that was sent via a process(swatch). > I can send emails fine via command-line and receive immediately to the > forwarded address.
