Forwarding E-mail

When an ARSC system generates system email for your account, this e-mail will be forwarded to the addresses listed in the .forward file in your home directory (~/.forward). By default, this file is set to forward to the e-mail address you provided when your account was created. An example file would look like

imexample27@alaska.edu

It is possible to forward to multiple addresses. Simply add each address on a separate line:

imexample27@alaska.edu my.self@example.com

For advanced usage, such as piping mail to external commands, please read the aliases(5) and local(8) manual pages.
