To forward mails for unknown users to common host


Hi,

I have a problem in configuring mails for unknown users in Redhat 8.0 / Sendmail 8.12.5 setup. I have some pop3 email ids and some local users of same domain. If I send mails from local to a pop3 id, mail bounces back. I want to forward the unknown users mails directly to the domain. My domain will take care after that. I have configured the same for Cobalt Qube 3 / Sendmail 8.10.2 setup by adding a line DLsmtp:domainname.com but I dont know how to do it here. I couldn't find answers anywhere on net and all answers are for forwarding the unknown user mails to single account.

Somebody please help me out to solve this.

if you want local mail to be forwarded to pop3, add a ~/.forward file for all local accounts. There should be one line with the users fully qualified email address

If you want non-existand email to all be routed to one particular user, first, look at /etc/aliases, then get ready for a deluge of SPAM.

No I have multiple pop3 users so I can't route to particular user. These pop3 users does not exist locally. Say I have pop3 users abcpop@mydomain.com and xyzpop@mydomain.com which doesn't exist in my local redhat setup. If I send mails from redhat to pop ids i am getting bounce mails immediately. I want to route the unknown user mails to mydomain.com. I want the solution for this setup.
