Forwarding email in Ubuntu

jjcv over in the Ubuntu forums taught me how to forward email to an external address:

MAke sure you have a mail server installed…. something like postfix.

Edit /etc/aliases

added or edit an entry for root to forward email:


Save the file.

Run the program 'newaliases' which will update the aliase database and test it.

Thanks, man!
