    mails directed to users who don't exist as real users


    Hi,

    I have installed sendmail, but by default, sendmail will reject e-mails directed to users who don't exist as real users or as aliases.

    I want sendmail to accept all incoming email and redirect mail for unknown users to a particular user such as postmaster.

    How do I do this?

    Thanks Alot!!!!

    Hey,

    As it is all unknown user mails already redirects to root@yourhostname.com
    You can set alias for root user as postmaster in /etc/aliases so that mails will appear on both root@yourhostname.com and postmaster@yourhostname.com
    But i guess you need to create an user account for postmaster then
