Re: .forward files no longer work, life with a trapdoor setuid() [SysV]
In <93Jan2.firstname.lastname@example.org> you write:
| Along a possibly similar note, since we installed Zmailer, .forward

If you're using nfs to mount home directories, be aware that a hard mount
to a downed machine will freeze router while it waits to read said .forward
file. I replaced .forwards with a shell script that mails me entries to
put into the aliases file, all pre-tested and rady to go. Then I had
to educate my whole usr community, of course (:-().
Still, it's better than no mail because somebody's disk went down!
