How To Send Local Mail To Internet And Back

How To Send Local Mail To Internet And Back

How To Send Local Mail To Internet And Back

We are in the process of installing a new e-mail software package (Lotus Domino). Currently we are using Sendmail on a Fedora Linux box. In order to port the old mail over to the new system, users will need to mail themselves so the mail goes to the new account, (the same account as resides on the Linux box).

Since local mail doesn't leave the linux box, forwarded mail would go right back into their current mailbox. How can I tell sendmail (or whatever I need) to send all local mail out to the internet first so that the new system can grab it?
