Hi Chris,


For sending mail to unix users, you might take a look at Andrzej's page
that he mentioned in a post yesterday:

Andrzej [en:Andrew] Adam Filip:
"I promote a few alternative ways of cyrus and sendmail integration,
all of 
them use local mailer for some users and curys||cyrusv2 for other
[ e.g. http://anfi.webhop.net/sendmail/localtab.html ]"

I had a look at it, and it looks slick. Although the examples seem to
presume that your default local mailer is "local" rather than "cyrusv2",
it might be able to be used in the reverse sense -- i.e. your default
local mailer is cyrusv2, and you put in the localtable something like:

root        local:chris

to send root's mail to your "chris" unix account.

Andrzej, is this interpretation correct?
