I am a new MailScanner user and I am very impressed with it to say the least...  

Can someone help on a slightly off topic issue?  We use MailScanner to scan mail then it relays it to our main mail server, a GroupWise system on Netware box, with an entry in /etc/mail/mailertable. All works well. But we would like to use the opportunity of the unix box on which MailScanner runs to take care of some of the re-direction we need to do for people who have left us. I am not very good with unix, but I now that in normal circumstances, putting the entries in /etc/aliases would allow us to re-direct the mail to the outside world. Unfortunaley, no entries in /etc/aliases seem to work - probably because of the entry in mailertable.  Is there something I can do to be able to use /etc/aliases?

Thanks in advance.
