I read that page and really like the idea a lot. It would aid my task
tremendously since we have a lot of subscribers that like to forward
their mail all over toledo and back. I would however appreciate it if
someone could provide very specific examples of how this could be
implemented with sendmail 8.8.x (and/or 8.9.x, I'm thinking of
upgrading) and majordomo 1.94.4 (also Perl 5.004.04 if it matters).
Thanks for any help,
