what might be the problem can you explain any one and tell me the solution.
Thanks in Advance
I think anybody can write to the /home/excell/.forward directory.
Perhaps you should change those directory permissions so that only the user can write here, otherwise you could find yourself vulnerable to being used to relay spam to the whole wide world.
See the man page for 'chmod' to fix permissions.
