Hello Guys

I try to run dnsreport.com on my server and it says I have an error, on that part and a few other but I figure I would hit one prob at a time, so can someone help thanks

Sincerly

The aliases file is how you would do this.

vi /etc/aliases

add something like

postmaster: <some account>
abuse: <some other account>

save then run newaliases to update the actual files

Hope this helps
