    4 
    5 The virtual domain (e.g. "paging.example.com") should already be in DNS, with
    6 the sendpage server setup in MX record.
    7 
    8 Modify the /etc/postfix/transport file to include:
    9 
   10 	paging.example.com		sendpage:localhost
   11 
   12 Modify the /etc/postfix/master.cf file to include:
   13 
   14 	sendpage     unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe flags=
   15         user=nobody argv=/usr/bin/sendmail2snpp -f $(sender) $(user)
   16 	
   17 	Just make sure the "argv=" points to the proper path for the agent.
   18 
   19 In /etc/postfix/main.cf, add virtual domain to the "mydestination" line:
   20 
   21 mydestination = myhost.example.com, myhost, localhost.localdomain, localhost, paging.example.com
   22 
   23 In /etc/postfix/main.cf, turn on transport maps:
   24 
   25 	transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
   26 
   27 In /etc/postfix/main.cf, uncomment "local_recipient_maps":
   28 	local_recipient_maps =
   29 
   30 From "/etc/postfix", run "postmap transport" to create the transport.db file.
   31 
   32 Make sure your paging box accepts smtp connections from your corporate mail
   33 gateway box.
   34 
   35 Restart postfix.
   36 
   37 Make sure recipients are setup in the sendpage.cf file like the following
   38 	[recip:joe_blow]
   39 	dest = 5551212@mypagingqueue
   40 		
   41 Try sending an email page addressed like the following
   42 
   43 	To:joe_blow@paging.example.com
   44 	Subject: Test Page
   45 	
   46 	Hello, I am a test page thru email using sendpage.
