(sigh) Why didn't you say that in the first place? Are we supposed to
read your mind? And BTW "DNS" does not "send mail". I think what you
meant to say is that you have an MX record that indicates that your
machine is a relay for the 'mydomain.com' domain.
Yes, exim will do that. You're better off editing the exim.conf file
and reading its comments. The exim manual is large, because exim can be
used to do a lot of things. You should also read the exim FAQ on
exim.org, specifically Q0320, which suggests something like the
following in your routers section:
driver = redirect
domains = mydomain.com
data = firstname.lastname@example.org
That should forward any message destined for @mydomain.com to
'email@example.com' You'll also have to add mydomain.com to the local
domains list in order for exim to accept the mail.
