Hah! Just reread the man page.

If you use this: 

Domain name to qualify usernames if email address is not explicitly given with the "--mail-user" option. If unset, the local MTA will need to qualify local address itself.

Shouldn't need to worry about the .forward stuff if you set that to your campus/lab email domain. You'd still need most of the postfix config though. Don't think I saw that when I set this up a while back.

    I am new to Slurm and was just wondering if someone has a link or info on getting Slurm to send mail to users.  Are you using sendmail, postfix or ???.  I have been asked to get the --mail-user option working but I am not sure how Slurm
     ties into mail.  Does mail have to listen for messages from Slurm?  What changes have to be made to slurm.conf? 
    Any thoughts, help out there?
