Hello Raymond

It is now, I had it in local domains by mistake.

Now as this is my first time using mailertable I would just like to verify
a couple of things.

The reason that mail is scanned by MailScanner is that it is handeled by a
queue only daemon and MailScanner processes the mail and puts it in the
outbound queue. Once in the outbound queue sendmail does a lookup in the
mailertable and sends the mail to the specified host.

If this is how it works then I'm thinking that further processing of mail
by say procmail or a custom .forward file would not be done as that is
done by the "local" mailer rather then sendmail.

Or... is there a magic switch or incantation that will allow procamail to
have a stab at it as well.

Thanks for your help
