I have configured a qmail+vpopmail mail server that is running on Redhat Enterprise 4 and is running perfectly except there is one small problem with the old mail server we currently have running. As it stands I have created a domain called test.edu and all mailboxes that are not found on this box are flipped over to the old mailserver where the remaining mailboxes are located. This is done with through the .qmail-default file. It seems to be working fine other than when a person tried to send a mail from the webmail client at test2.edu and the test.edu does not recognize the mailboxes and rejects the mail. Question.. Would creating an alias domain on the test.edu box work? And if so, how would I flip it back through the .qmail-default file so that any mailboxes that the alias domain couldn't find would be flipped back over to the old mailserver where the remaining mailboxes are?
I'm not sure I completely understand your setup, but if you add test2.edu to the rcpthosts file on test.edu, it will accept email for that domain and forward it on to the server hosting test2.edu.
