How do I set up the email alias on Rancid application on Opensuse 11.1 using a relay server?

to build server.  Not sure if it's going to work because I changed the Home directory to home/rancid and have followed all the other instructions.

Right now I'm at the point where it has the /etc/aliases creation.  The sample file is

rancid-admn-networking:      rancid-networking
rancid-networking:                noc

In order for me to receive emails from a utility server I must go to

suggestions would be appreciated.

    Did you run the newaliases command?

    Is this sendmail? Postfix? Qmail?

    I'm not sure what to put in the alias file so I haven't run the command.  The relay server is set up to relay emails that are sent from an application.  So do I put MY email address in the file.  That's where my question is.

    Hi Liz,

    Here's an example. Please remember each sendmail type server is different, so I really would need to know the exact server information. Usually this can be obtained with the command

    /usr/sbin/sendmail -d0 < /dev/null | more

    The example is:
    webmaster:, someone@YOUR-DOMAIN.NAME

    You can learn more by running the command:
    man aliases
