Re: smail routing


I tried that, and indeed when I have set this sort of thing up before using TIS Gauntlet this is what you do.  However, because I am on a dial-up line smail is delivering to the smarthost as soon as it sees that the mail is not local ie it never checks DNS.

So the problem appears to be, how can I overide the smarthost thingy so that it will know to send the mail for the specific mail to my internal mailserver??
