Ian, everything is clear, except
"- Create a "local user relay" entry to automatically forward any email
to your mailserver. What this really does is to forward any mail
addressed to a mailbox (i.e. the LHS of the "@") that is NOT in
/etc/passwd - so "root at example.com" will arrive at the relay..."
This is the same to add this line to my sendmail.cf in the procmail
replace "DS" with "DSimail.domain.com" (Where "imail.domain.com" is the
hostname of the protected server)
(this is a "smart host" configuration) or is another configuration, i
didnt find any "local user relay" in the Sendmail help, FAQ nor CF file.
I promise i will create an "procmail gateway for dummies" document with
all your help...
Thanks all again for your help.
