We do use two ways siumultaneously for UUCP interaction.
"Corporative" machines having own MX RR are described in db/routes
(and listed in db/smtp-policy.mx!) in trivial way:
Additionally, mail for the "login-name" of this UUCP entry is
forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org - for right processing of
some exotic errors. Naturally, actual user lists are administrated by
UUCP machines owners.
"Personal" machines with 1-2 users are maintained differently, to
avoid unnecessary DNS changes. Users are assumed to be belonging
to host machine (email@example.com). In db/aliases this
username is redirected to firstname.lastname@example.org. Finally,
fakedomain.uucp is routed to uucp!fakedomain in db/routes. Proper
originating addresses should be configured at UUCP side; also, user
lists at SMTP host and UUCP machines should be kept in sync manually.
"First" user at each "personal" UUCP machine can be really present in
/etc/passwd creating dial-up entry for this machine. Rest ones should
be aliases only!
Seems, it works.
