ProcedureHow to Create a Separate Mailbox for postmaster

If you are creating a separate mailbox for postmaster, follow these instructions.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Create a user account for the person who is designated as postmaster. Put an asterisk (*) in the password field.

    For details about adding a user account, refer to Chapter 5, Managing User Accounts and Groups (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  3. After mail has been delivered, enable the mail program to read and write to the mailbox name.

    # mail -f postmaster

    Use the assigned address.
