I have a client that runs a program called DMPro. This is a multi-autoresponder that sends up to ten autoresponses to the recipient. This could be used as a sales followup or a training series or many other applications.

The program uses a .forward file to read all incoming mail looking for mail addressed to one of the autoresponders. If it detects one it forwards that piece of mail onto a cgi program who handles the rest of that process. It may be an enrollment or someone wanting to be removed.

Anyhoo, I was over at the Exim website looking through the documentaion and Exim can use .forward files but I am confused as to where I can place that file.

My sites are on ultraspeed if that helps.

Any helpers?

Specifics and nomenclature can vary from one server to another, however, so it's smart to check with your server admin.
