Activate NotifyMail on Qube 3
this is for use with NotifyMail on a client machine
1 - allow finger to be run from sendmail
you must be logged as root :
ln -s /usr/bin/finger /usr/adm/sm.bin/
2 - edit file called .forward in the user's home
There is a file called .forward in /home/users/name_user_you_want_notify/.
A the end of this file (after line # VACATIONEND) you must create new line with :
\name_user_you_want_notify, "| finger nm_notifyuser@ip_or_dns_of_machine_you_want_notify"
Joe's computer is a Macintosh with NotifyMail installed (like me ;-)).
Joe's ip is 192.168.0.100
Joe wants to know when there is a new email for him on the Qube.
edit file /home/users/joe/.forward on the Qube :
\joe, "| finger firstname.lastname@example.org"
