SENDMAIL Aliases Help
 
I have sendmail servicing multiple domains successfully.

For the first time today and email arrived for adm@domain.com

Where domain.com is one of my virtual hosting domains.

Since adm is in my aliases list as a default entry the email was rerouted to me the system administrator instead of being bounced back as an unknown user. This occurs for all those default aliases in /etc/aliases

How can I change this to work correctly? or atleast how I think it should work!

thanks.

Edit your aliases then to redirect anything that goes to adm to the proper account you want to recieve it at like for example I want adm@domain.com to go to my user trickykid, I would do:

adm: trickykid

And then just run newaliases to update this.
