Subject Re: documentation & configuration

Hi,

Thanks for your assistance so far, however, I'm still unsure as to some 
details.

I'm currently trying to work out how to do different things with James.

The scenario I'm considering is: -

Two computers running James
Each computer has a mail server, but the user mailboxes are split up between 
the two boxes (I'd be using a db repository).

I believe that you're suggesting that I write a custom matcher/mailet pair 
to pull out any non-local users & send it over to the other.

I guess for the extra spool I'd need to just have another mail table 
created, I've not yet looked into how this is done.

"In this case you have a custom remotedelivery (with its
> >> own spool, separated from the outgoin) that deliver mails to the other
> >> JAMES server (you can use the gateway configuration)"
How were you envisining the mail being sent to the other computer in this 
scenario?

I'll start looking in to this further, but will probably have a lot more 
questions on configuration. The xml files aren't always self explanatory.

Thanks,

John
