If you have configured an outgoing SMTP mail server you can add an alias
to /etc/aliases of the form "username: email@example.com" (note colon
after username) so that mail sent to the local username will be
redirected to email@example.com. After editing /etc/aliases you should
run the "newaliases" command.

You may also want to add the same information to
/etc/postfix/sender_canonical though note the format is "username
email@example.com" (no colon after username). After editing run "postmap
/etc/postfix/sender_canonical".

HTH.

Hi linuxformat,

do you mean that you're running your own mail server on the machine, or have you set it up to use some other MTA? If the former, how did you set things up (null client? Some MTA configuration?) and how's the general environment you're running your server in - do you have some central mail server (MTA) that would take care of things? Do you instead have to connect your MTA to "the Internet" and if so, is a separate firewall involved?

If you're running your own MTA (no null client to some other MTA), then it might require no more than the proper setup of the transport map. Especially if you need to use an upstream MTA (i.e. operated by your Internet provider).

Jens
