Unhappy donotreply configuration


Hi I would really appreciate if someone can tell me how to setup the following in Red Hat

current user: user1 with email user1@localdomain.com
I want to change user1 email to donotreply@localdomain.com

Thanks

To /add/ donotreply forwarding to user1, you can add an alias in /etc/aliases. To entirely change it, you could rename the user account all together by changing the respective entries in /etc/passwd and /etc/group -- but if you're just after mail, that is likely not a preferable method.
