No problem.  You need to change the To: address when you reply, this mail 
list doesn't work like all the others.  Don't worry, I forget all the time too.

Then you will need to set up a relay system, but it would get relayed 
before it hit the procmail filters.  Can't IMail server run procmail?  I 
know you can run Perl on Windoze things.

I'd say.  To bad for him that you can't change his mind.

Have you tried it?

Yeah, I caught that the first time.

Can you send mail from the sendmail server to the imail server?  Maybe you 
could write a bounce at the end of procmail to forward the message from 
sendmail.domain.com to imail.domain.com.

Is imail.domain.com an Internet FQDN or only on a LAN?

You are not really using "domain.com" right?

If it wasn't a Windows box I'm sure you would find a lot more help, like 
fetchmail or something.  Maybe there is a fetchmail type thingy for Windoze 
or IMail?
