Thank you for all the replies. Everybody basically had the same variation on the
same technique. So here is how I combined all the ideas together....
On the clients:
- add to /etc/fstab:
mailhost:/var/spool/mail /var/spool/mail nfs rw,noac,nosuid,intr,bg 0 0
[ all the options in that line should be enough for safety purposes, I hope! :) ]
- kill sendmail daemon so no spooling, only mail forwarding.
- add MX entry to forward all mail to mailhost (this is for named).
- add to /etc/exports:
- grab all email to this domain regardless of machine in /etc/sendmail.cf.
Since I'm using SunOS 4.1.1, the OR entries are already in the /etc/sendmail.cf
files. I've done tests and things work just fine.
