Yo all:

I have a Linux system on the Internet ( on an intermitent SLIP
connection ) under domain esoterica.com

I’m able to receive email to orthanc.esoterica.com because I
put this name on the other_names line in config.

But when mail comes in to xpto.esoterica.com it starts bouncing
around between me and my provider: the mail arrives to the address
xpto.esoterica.com, smail finds out its not this machine and sends
the msg back out.

What I’d like to happen: the mail would stay on queue to be delivered
when that system connected to my machine, allowing me to have, for
example, a system using UUCP polling my machine for mail to it ( which
would be addressed to xpto.esoterica.com ), or have that mail delivered
to a BBS using Fidonet format ( ifmail, etc )

Anyone can give me a hand/hint ?

Thanks in advance.

C U!
