I am not an unix expert, but I am used it for a few times with my
girlfriend email and it hasn't create any trouble... Mail are forwarded to
me and her where her is the account in the homedir I create the .forward
(with hername, myname).

Putting only myname caused sendmail to send only to me.... 

Boh I'll make some test right now ... I am a bit curios of this thing now ....

Thanks again for your reply
