Subject: Alternate routing suggestion for SIMS as ISP Mail server

If you need to differentiate further (ie, if you have 3 domains with the address "sales@..." or "info@..." or "webmaster@..." etc), you'd need to do further router entries.

For instance

<> = domain1sales
<> = joe
<*> = = = =

I've considered doing with my SIMS box what the original poster is doing with his SIMS server, and found a  portion of the doc that seems to apply. This scheme looks a little easier to setup...

<*> = *
<*> = *!domain1
<*> = *!domain2

Such that, when you add an account (ie. Domain2 says "Add a new user named" you create an account on the SIMS server named johnsmith!domain2, and the router (with above entries) should drop it in his box.

The other respondent's suggestion would work perfectly well--but this way seems to have a little less administrative overhead, and each domain or sub-domain you're covering would need only one line in the router, instead of one line per account on any domain...That could get to be big real fast.

Now, I haven't really DONE this myself yet, and probably never will... I'm preparing to transition SIMS into a backup mail server role for a mail service I'm going to roll out this summer... (You can bet I'll post details as they become available.)

Good luck though! Us e-mail admin geeks have to stick together!
