Default Email redirect

:o I am attempting to redirect my email to my Tmobile BB account. I am unclear on how to find the proper smtp server that I should be redirecting to. How do I find out which server I should be sending to?

Thanks in advance.

You shouldn't ever tell anything which server to forward mail to.

You should be telling it which *address* to forward to, and it should use Mail Exchange (MX) records to determine what machines to send the emails to.

I don't think you're forwarding properly, or you took a wrong turn somewhere!

I use UNIX mailservers and just add a rule in procmail to "echo" my email to my BWC account. I wrote an article about it here:
