email forwarding


Hello, is there a simple way to set up email forwarding on my server? I'd like email that goes to webmaster@mydomain to be forwarded to my gmail account. Is is very easy?

Depends on the server software. If you have a control panel it is very easy. Do you run you're own mail server or do you mean the webmaster@mydomain in the httpd.conf of apache ?

I run my own server with SuSE 10. I don't want/need a full fledged POP mail server, I would just like the emails forwarded to my gmail account. What package would be best to install for this?

well it would be the smtp server that would handle forwarding and I imagine your server already has one installed.. I prefer Postfix. You may already have postfix, Exim or Sendmail installed and running on your system..
