Forward the Root Users Email to an External Email Address

In this article we demonstrate how to forward the root users Inbox to an external email address. An email heading to the root users local inbox will not be delivered to root but instead forwarded to the specified email addresses. Yes, we can forward to multiple addresses.

Edit the “/root/.forward” and populate that file with a comma separated list of email addresses to receive inbound emails.

/root/.forward

Populate the above file with the following (example):

me@example,com, you@example.com

The same file can be placed in any local users home directory.
