that is correct. In fact, qmail-send doesn't care about smtproutes at all.. qmail-remote does.. and qmail-remote is only called when a delivery is to be made to a remote host.. qmail-send determines that by checking if the domain is in locals or virtualdomains. > This is where I am not clear and would love to be > corrected.

Thanks you might want to look at the PIC.* files in /var/qmail/doc for how qmail processes incoming emails. -Jeremy -- Jeremy Kitchen ++ Systems Administrator ++ Inter7 Internet Technologies, Inc.
