Forward all the mail to an other adres


How can I catch all the mail from a domain and forward that to an other external adress.

I am not a virtualminPro user as yet but I have many Webservers and do this all the time for clients who want us to host their website but want to receive their mail on an in house server.

The easiest way I know to do this is to go into your DNS Zone records and change the IP address of the to the new mail server IP address.

Before you do this make sure you have setup the new mail server to accept the mail including setting up all users. Also make sure that you have a Ptr record on the new mail server and to change your spf records to reflect the new mail server address or you may have problems when you try to send mail to many of the ISP's like AOL, Yahoo, Earthlink, and many others that may require these records for delivery.
