Hi all,

where can I configure in sendmail the assignment between users and e-mail addresses or
how does a centos linux system with sendmail, devocot, procmail, ... know, which local system-user uses which e-mail address.

Example: How does my server know, that an email send to

info@example.com

is for the local user

info_example_com

and must be saved in the folder

/home/info_example_com/mail/

Is there a specific configuration file?

Regards,

Peter
