Thanks very much for the time to help Jason.
That was as far as I got. I diligently stopped right there wanting to get
that right before proceding to take my working mail down <smile>.
Someone else also pointed out my misunderstanding as you described above. I
swapped rcmd to smtp and all was well. I was following the Book of Postfix
examples literally, but I didn't see anything to make me think to do
otherwise. With the help I got from the other person and now you, too, I
was able to get it going. So I have that part behind me and working.
Thanks again for the help.
