I've recently been teaching myself about the BSDs and decided to pick up a NetBSD VPS. I don't always log in to this box every day (it's not actually doing anything that important), but I'd still like to monitor
root's mail. To that end, I started looking into how to forward
root's mail to an external account. I learned a little about the
/etc/aliases file, and it looks like I might be able to build up a pipeline to do this for me, but I'm treading into unfamiliar territory.
Is there a tutorial that covers this sort of thing? Is it even a good idea?
