Yes, sir, I will provide any information you need.
I want to have two mailboxes with two addresses (for one account)
on my computer. These different mailboxes I mean to use for different sources
of incoming mail. So I need two real mailboxes, not two aliases
for one mailbox. Then I can give my different address to different senders.
Although, I can make all mail going to one address and then filter incoming
mail, I think it is a wrong way, because of superfluous action.
One mailbox I have since account creation. Its address is account name.
The sendmail sends a mail to this address to /var/mail/account_name.
How to make the second mailbox?
I have installed FreeBSD 6.0 and Sendmail 8.13.5.
Any additional information needed?
Yours sincerely, Elisej Babenko
