Fowarding Mail

At some point in time, you may want to set up a forwarding address so that all your mail is sent to your most frequently used computer. This will relieve you of the hassle of having to log on to each computer system on which you have an account simply to read your mail.

If you want to read your mail on one of the Unix Cluster, you need to get all your mail forwarded there. Contact the (Lena Scimeca) and ask her to enter a forwarding address of on the VAXes. This will tell the system to send all your mail to your Sun mailbox.

To forward mail to the VAXes, simply create a `/usr/mail/.forward/<username>' file on the Suns containing username@vaxmail.

To check your forwarding address, use finger username@ppl---the computer will expand and display your preferred address.
