Sendmail in linux

By sivakumar ·
Hi,

I have configured sendmail such that all mails with domain spel.com gets routed to the respective mailbox.

when say x is travelling and wants to see his message, he can do it. But when i send a mail to x@spel.com, it sits in the local mail server. I want to push this mail out. How can this be done?

well it depends....

to forward it to both a local and a remote
mailbox create an entry in the aliases file:
x: \x, <offsite mail address>

if you want to access the mail folder then you
need an extra tool:

pop server (using the pop3 protocol,
downloads all mail to remote);
or an imap server (uses imap protocol, leaves
all mail on the server);
or a webserver like: squirrelmail or sqwebmail.

Kind regards,
Nico Baggus
