Data mail, aliases, pager


I have two aliases for two types of alert.



The first alias containts only an email to go through the company exchange/mail server. Works fine.

The second alias contains only a pager which also works fine.

The problem is that if I put on the first alias with both email and pager (separated with comma as usual when adding more recipeint). The pager won't go to through and will always have a system undeliverable.

I don't want to setup my blackberry to vibrate or even tune because I don't want to wake for all companies email. I only want to wake up on my AIX alerts that go to through my pager. I have both blackberry and pager.

Where do I need to start looking for this problem in AIX 4.3.3?

Thanks in advance,

I think the problem is the number in "alert1" but I'll be back to confirm it. It needs to be removed or rename it to "alertone".

But please if you have any suggestions right now.

Actually, this is weird. The problem was another alias: owner-italert1. If I remark it then it will be able to send thru a pager address and it will go through without any problem.

I don't know if this is the same with AIX 5.3/6. Watch out!
