Big newbie issue...

Running Sendmail, everything is running fine... I'm attempting to set up a .forward file. The purpose being to allow for E-mail forwarding. I have placed the .forward in \home dir. The .forward file looks something like this:


"\Phil" Phil is the account name and of course the alternate E-mail address follows...

At this point it's not forwarding the message to my alternate account. Do I need to modify any of my sendmail.* files? Are there any special file permissions? Any help would be quite appreciated!
