I admin a server which is running a number of web applications for a software dev team (source control, bug tracking, etc). The server has sendmail running solely as a transport to the departmental email server over which I have no control.
We have someone who is still in the department but no longer on the dev team so I need to configure the transport agent to redirect all outgoing email (which would be coming from these applications) to the person that has taken their place. I added an entry in /etc/aliases like such:
But when I run
I get the following error:
/etc/mail/aliases: line 32: email@example.com... cannot alias non-local names
So clearly I'm doing something I shouldn't. Is there a way to get aliases to work with non-local names or alternatively is their a way to accomplish my goal of redirecting outgoing mail for this user to another one?
Technical Specs if the matter:
- Ubuntu 6.06
- sendmail 8.13 (ubuntu provided package)
