Forwarding Email


I have a Red Hat Linux 7.2 box running as my mail server. If i wanted to set up a .forward file what would the syntax be? How do I set up an auto-reply with sendmail on that machine?

To forward (for example) to your hotmail address, just this line:
sw1tchb0ard@hotmail.com

How do I set up an auto-reply with sendmail on that machine?
Depends. Procmail or an app called "vacation".
