Question

Hi,

Thanks for that.

I had gone through that early, but was not clear about the example given on that site. Below is the example from that site.

"For example all mail coming from network 192.168 route to mail.myisp.com and all email for nixcraft.com"

It says for nexcarft.com, but it is still not clear that mail routing will be done for FROM or TO domain. My understanding is for means TO domain will be considered.

i.e:- from abc@example1.com to abx@newdomain.com
from the above for will be newdomain.com

Someone please correct me.

I have tested this for about 10 minutes and so far i am only able to reroute messages TO and not FROM.
I dont really have anymore time to test, so i think it best if you test and see what the outcome is.
