Solunds like a win.. hopefully. Can you sent me the mailtable
that I might use to have "kline at thought.org" goto zen.thought.org
and zivic at thought.org be forwarded to ns1.thought.org, and
grzegorz at thought.org be sent to ethos.thought.org? I see an
example as the equivalent of 10K words.
Is there ay way of testing this after I have set up my table
entries? In other words, how do I re-initialize things without
having to (ugh) *reboot*.
