Thanks for the reply.
I'm not sure I completely understand. Is the forward_path a directory on the mail server or a path to the remote users' home? Is that a per user or system setting (e.g. users' home directories may be on different servers)?
I'm guessing that the forward_path is on the mail server. If that is the case, from the users' perspective, how do they handle forwarding?
