FWD or CC unix inbox

FWD or CC unix inbox Can't Post

I am looking for some sort of utility that wil FWD or CC mail in a users box on a UNIX machine to another adress WITHOUT using the .domains file..
I use MReply for my auto responders.. the orig request comes in.. passes thru the .domains file and it gets passed to MReply which does it thing back to the requester. The original post making the request gets dumped onto the server in the users inbox.

My people are not the most net or computer savvy ppl in the world Smile they usually have AOL accounts and I have enough trouble educating them in the 1st place.. now to have to teach them to pull the mail off the server.. even with mailstart or equiv.. is a pain..

Do you know of anyway to force that mail off the box to another address.. they are unix boxes running pine.. and I've fooled with the .domains file a bit to try and force the mail to the company, but its not happening.. maybe there is a script or a bat file or something that can pull the mail from the users in box and CC it or FWD it to another address???

Thanks Smile

Sorry about the delay in responding. Check out procmail at It allows you to to a lot of mail preprocessing (forwarding, sorting, etc). The only thing is that many people report that it's a bear to install.

Good luck!
