Good morning!

I'm using FC5 + these mail programs:

hxxxxxx:afarber {221} rpm -qa|grep mail

For the sendmail I've added /etc/mail/authinfo,
so that I can send mail through their SMTP server
and this works ok for me.

Also I have put my mail address into /root/.forward:

hxxxxxx:afarber {223} sudo cat /root/.forward
[email protected]
hxxxxxx:afarber {224} sudo ls -l /root/.forward
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 27 Oct  5 09:52 /root/.forward

My problem is that the mails sent to root go to
[email protected] and not to
[email protected] I see them in
the Gmail's "Sent Mail", but not in the "Inbox":

(this is a mail I've sent with "mail root". Do you see the wrong To: above?)

Could someone please give me a hint, what could I be missing here?
I want the root mails to go to the address listed in /root/.forward and
not to [email protected] !
