Does it go to a mailbox on the linux server, or elsewhere?

Sounds like a pretty standard email configuration.  Have you tried just installing postfix and turning it on?

What flavor of linux are you running?

for example

cat /etc/hosts | mailx -s "test" myname@domain.com

If i execute this command its does not goes to my mailbox but it goes to common mail box called "myTeam"

This is the current setup with my old server.

I wanted to know how it is working and configured?

So to confirm..  you want anything sent via your postfix installation to go to a single mailbox on that server regardless of destination address, correct?

I found that there was some setting on the exchange server side which forward all emails from specific ip address list.  I am not sure how to do it. I am using smtp relay now.

Thanks for all of your help.
