can i speculate about what isp you use?
We have established a domain (e.g. mycompany.com) and would like to have
addresses like jdoe(_at_)mycompany(_dot_)com rather than
jdoe(_at_)isp(_dot_)com; but the ISP
directs all mail addressed to mycompany.com to one mailbox. They tell us
that it will be up to the person who receives all mail addressed to
mycompany.com to redistribute it to the appropriate mailbox at isp.com and
suggested using procmail.
well... It sort of cannot be done :). This is not quite true. I
know how it might be done with sendmail, but it seems that you are
running smail. If it was sendmail, you could just get the envelope
sender and envelope recipient on the command line (using the procmail
delivery agent that you get if you add a:
to the file that generates the sendmail.cf file) Then the information
would come on the command line and all would.
the problem is that the headers do have to provide any information
about who the mail is going to. it is just common courtesy to do so :)
If you have a domain, why won't they just queue it and send it off to
you when you connect?
