email forwarding

I have a solaris runing as a email gateway, which should rewrite the domain name before.com to after.com, and forward the email to the mx host of after.com.

For example, I will send a email to <test@before.com> to this solaris box, and it should rewrite to <test@after.com> and forward it to my internal email server which is pointed bu the mx record of after.com.

I have tried to add a rewriting rule as S11 in the rewriting section:

R$*@before.com  $1@after.com

Is this correct way?

I am actually confused where I should put this rewriting rule? rule set 3 or 0 or 1?


RE: email forwarding

you could try using "mailertable" to set from one to the other ... then you wouldn't have to work with the m4 files by hand.

If it is for specific users then you could use the 'virtuser' table instead.
