    sendmail

    i created .forward in my home directory, but mails are still in my mail box, email defined in .forward not works, so i defined only username, but still no effect.

    how to use .forward

    Q2
    if i set my hostname like c2.topsi.com, and domain name in local-host-names i can get my mail less then second from other users or domain.
    but if i set hostname c2 it takes time to send mails from others or from me. actually i wana enable setup like in isp that hosts companies mail server on single system how it can be done?

    thanks
    take care
    bye

    Dear ammad,
    Salam,

    o remove ~/.forward
    o place the following lines in ~/.procmailrc:
    :0
    | formail -I 'Reply-To: replytoaddress@foo.bar' | \
    $SENDMAIL -oi forwartoaddress@foo.bar
    FYI, http://lists.q-linux.com/pipermail/p...il/007347.html

    and for your 2nd Question you have to setup a DNS Server to this
