SUMMARY (Re: What do you do for sendmail in your network of Suns?)

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).

On mailhost:

- add to /etc/exports:
  /var/spool/mail -access=client,root=client
- grab all email to this domain regardless of machine in /etc/

Since I'm using SunOS 4.1.1, the OR entries are already in the /etc/
files. I've done tests and things work just fine.

Thanks again.
