Forwarding MAIL?

» close window

The Question is:

I thought I knew how to use FORWARD in MAIL.
However : How can I forward to a distribution list ?
Or should I read newmail, and forward it to the list ? (periodically in batch)
Thanks in advance.

The Answer is :

  OpenVMS mail does not support forwarding to a distribution list,
  you must use NMAIL or DELIVER or such.  (These tools are available
  on the Freeware.)  A more advanced alternative would involve the
  use of a mail server such as MajorDomo.
