I have a similar situation, and I haven't gotten too far with the 
docs in the tar.  I will have two hostnames defined (one's an alias) 
in my dns to point to my Linux box (with zmailer of course) connected 
to the Internet, say host1.some.thing.com and host2.some.thing.com.

How I'm wanting to set up the mail routing is for zmailer to pick up 
anything addressed to host1.some.thing.com and some.thing.com, and 
deliver it to users on the Linux box (giving "user doesn't exist as 
appropriate). But then forward any mail addressed to 
host2.some.thing.com to a second SMTP server on my LAN, not dirrectly 
connected to the 'net (using IP masq'ing).

Can I?  Might there be the errors mentioned above if a user on host2 
doesn't exist on host1?

Many thanks.
