Re: Smail config for a ppp box

Well, much as I prefer the smail configuration I have (on
http://www.math.jhu.edu/~martind/mybox.html) on my machine, (although
really your setup seems to be fine) here's how to do what you want:

Put the following at the _end_ of your /etc/smail/directors file (it
must be at the end; otherwise you'll have other problems, like mail
intended for root at your machine going to root at your isp!)


This will tell smail that if it receives something for whoever@avo.fr, 
and that doesn't match a valid local address, then it should not treat 
the mail as local.

Most mail programs' documentation doesn't seem made for the typical
ppp system.
