We are using KMS on RHEL4 and I'm having some troubles configuring all the email sent to "root" to get redirected to "Admin" user of the mail domain.

I have KMS installed on a RHEL4 and everything works nicely. To get the system mail on that machine work, I soft-linked /usr/sbin/sendmail to KMS sendmail command /opt/kerio/mailserver/sendmail so whenever the system sends an email to root it gets redirected to Admin<_a.t_> To work this out, I created on KMS admin an alias root pointing to Admin<_a.t_> With this configuration, any system mail generated on that machine gets correctly delivered to Admin<_a.t_>

The trouble is that now I want any email delivered to Admin user, gets forwarded to another external email address like sysadmin<_a.t_> To achieve this, I simply set on the Admin user that all the email gets forwarded to sysadmin<_a.t_>

With this config, when I try to send an email from the linux server using the mail command I get an error message on KMS and the email doesn't get delivered.

This is the command I use on linux:
# mail -s "pruebas2" root

...and this is the error I get from KMS:
<root> ( 550 5.3.0 Mailbox alias cannot be expanded)

...on the KMS mail log I got this entry:
[23/Feb/2009 10:06:21] Sent: Queue-ID: 49a26709-00000012, Recipient: <sysadmin<_a.t_>>, Result: failed, Status: 5.1.1 504 5.5.2 <root>: Sender address rejected: need fully-qualified address

Any clue about what I'm doing bad? Has someone got any suggestion about how to configure the RHEL4 machine so I can get email to an external email address delivered?

Thaks a lot in advance.
