Hi Dylan,

You should just be able to modify /etc/aliases and put in the e-mail alias
for root.

root: my@external.email

Then run the 'newaliases' program and it should be all good. You may have to
allow the IP of the box to be relayed through your mail server. But if it is
on the ISP's network they usually allow it by default.

Cheers,

Terry

Subject: Sendmail question

I am currently on the last stages of setting up a FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE 
File and Network Application Server. One of my last tasks is to simple 
forward all mail from root out through my isp's SMTP(requires 
authentication) server and to an email account i have elsewhere. That is 
to say i have no purpose for a mail server other than to handle mail 
from things like periodic and to move that mail elsewhere.

Can this be easily accomplished? If so are there any guides/how-to's? I 
have done a search around my usual BSD sites and books and found nothing 
that is easily modified to my circumstances.

Thanks, Dylan.
