One thing I did to help with the execution host configuration is to
change the mailer to be my own local script.  This was to ensure that
mail would be sent to the domain email handler, rather than to the local
host as it would normally be.  The script is below.


#! /bin/bash

# Get the type of machine we are on

case $ARCH in


# Get subject and email address
subject="`echo "$@" | sed -e 's/-s \(.* \)\([^ @][^ @]*\)@[^ @][^
emailAddress="`echo "$@" | sed -e 's/.* \([^ @][^ @]*@[^ @][^

# Mail sure that things to our domain go to the domain email server
case $emailAddress in

*group-w-inc.com | *localhost | *localhost.localdomain)
	emailAddress="`echo $emailAddress | sed -e
's/\([^@]*\)@.*/\1 at group-w-inc.com/'`"

# Send out the mail
$mailCmd -s "$subject" $emailAddress
