I followed your advice but I still cannot forward the local email to my account. The full contents of my /etc/mail/virtusertable is: # cat /etc/mail/virtusertable # $FreeBSD: src/etc/mail/virtusertable.sample,v 1.3 2000/11/02 23:32:31 dirk Exp $ # # Map one or all usernames at a source hostname to a specific (or the same) # username at another target hostname. Remember to add the source hostname # to /etc/mail/local-host-names so that sendmail will accept mail for the # source hostname. # @localhost [EMAIL PROTECTED] I run make maps and I tested if my account can receive email: $ echo "Test email 1" | mail -s "Test Email 1" [EMAIL PROTECTED] I successfully got this email in my mbox. Next I tried to send an email to an non-existing user: $ echo "Test email 1" | mail -s "Test Email 1" [EMAIL PROTECTED] I got an error saying "/home/rambius/dead.letter... Saved message in /home/rambius/dead.letter" and did not receive the email in my mailbox. Maybe emails to nonexisting users cannot be forwarded at all?
