Shalom faida,

Format of genericstable


Use real users.

Put the file in /etc/mail

You are done.

Distribute the file to all outbound mail servers.

It does not however act as a limit on whom from the domain can send mail. For that feature you need an access database.

Re: sendmail genericstable

why not use 'virtusertable', and re-map the entire domain?
