Hi, I use an alternative you migth find usefull. I use the /var/mail directory for the mail that is waiting to be fetched. Users that read there mail localy have a .forward file in there home dir. The users who have a .forward file also have a .procmailrc file. This causes the mail not to be send to /var/mail but to one of there own directories (usaly in /home). The users who don't read there mail localy use pop or imap to fetch it. They have a quota on the /var filesystem. I can as root use the /var/mail system to resend mails by moveing there mailboxes from /home to /var/mail, but they have to use fetchmail or getmail to do this. This way the can rerun there mail though there procmail filters. I don't have the feature included in sendmail. I hope this is helpfull. Contact me if you like this alternative and i will send you come config files if needed.
