Hi  bbdua,

     In your mail server, create an aliase to forward your email to your Sun box (eg, your sun box name: abc.yourdomain ) then your need to forward your email to: bbdua@abc.yourdomain, if you have configured sendmail on you Sun box then you sould able to send and receive email from your sun box. otherwse, you need to configure sendmail on your Sun box.

    you need to edit /etc/mail/sendmail.cf  to make your mail server as the Smart relay host

If you want to forward your Sun account to the Notes server you'll want to create an alias entry on the sun pointing to your Notes email address, something like:

su-username:        me@notes-addr

You'll need to rebuild the alias map with 'newaliases' after changinh the aliases file. Note that your can also forward root's mail with the same method.
