You have a couple of ways to do this.  One way is to configure your 
aliiases file on workhorse so the e-mail addresses are all addresses on 
bigdaddy.  For example, if you change the alias for root to something 
like "root: root bigdaddy" then root at bigdaddy should get all the mail 
that would go to root workhorse 

The other way is what I think you are trying now.  It sounds like you 
have the first half done - workhorse sends all its mail to bigdaddy.  
Now you have to tell bigdaddy that it should accept mail from the rest 
of the network as local mail.  You can add the names to 
/etc/mail/local-host-names.  Don't forget to run makemap after you 
change the file.  (Running "make" in /etc/mail will do the trick.)


    Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
 for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
