Easily doable with sendmail's virtusertable. I use it here and it works a
charm. Since I've only got about two hundred email addresses that don't
change that often I usually do it manually. I did however export the
mailboxes form Exchange (5.5) and wrote a little visual basic program to
initially build the list. If you'd like to know more details contact me off
list since this is a little off topic.
