that sounds easy enough to do, just with /etc/aliases.
would forward all mail for the above accounts to root@mailhost
In fact, if i recall correctly, the smail package which came with
debian 0.93 asked where you wanted root's mail sent to and modified
/etc/aliases accordingly. I remember that it recommended forwarding
root's mail to the first user created...I'm glad it asked, as I'd hate
to get root's mail sent to cas. I login as cas for my stuff, and login
or su to root for root stuff.
