    AFAIK, no!
    might be something that I can't se here right now.
    Have you sent out a question in the Postfix mail forum?
    If there is a flaw (with e.g. RH), I'm quite sure there will be an answer at that forum.

    In sendmail you can set up fowarding in virtualusertable in /etc/mail
    in your example
    if your username on the sendmail box is donald then it goes like this
    donald <tab><tab>donald.duck@ducktales.com

    P.S. Where is Glacier WA?
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    Thanks again.

    And Glacier, WA is in the Northwest corner of Washington State, about 100 miles north of Seattle and 40 miles east of Bellingham.

    can you check your mail logs and see if postfix is attempting to forward, but hitting some problem (ie. cannot find user on server or sumsuch) or if it is simply not reading the .forward file in any capacity?
