Catch all configuration in sendmail


Hi All,
Quote:
How can i catch all undelivered mail due to incorrect username are hostname send by sendmail should divert to catch all address..
In my office im using of sendmail to send mail to outside world but few time we are facing out undelivered due to mismatch of username .So our Management wants EVERY maladdressed message to get the reply. Vacation-style autoresponses will prevent looping by sending only one reply to each sender, but in this case that will not work.Whether it possible to do in sendmai .Any help is appreciated

Again, a brief search leads you to using procmail or the vacation feature in sendmail. All you've got to do is configure it....have you tried looking any of this up??

As I said in several of your other threads, you seem to put very little effort into looking anything up on your own (under ANY of your FOUR user id's), hardly ever post a follow up, answer questions when you're asked, or come back to mark your threads solved or even say thanks. Why should we continue to help you?
