Why not just set the search domain?
Authored by: etwoy on Jan 20, '03 06:37:01PM

Maybe I'm missing something here, but this is what I use the search domain for.

I just set my smtp server to be "mail", and when I'm at home, I have my search domain set to "home.domain.com", and at when I'm at work I set my search domain to "work.domain.com".

Thus when I'm at home, the smtp server gets set as "mail.home.domain.com" and when I'm at work it's "mail.work.domain.com".

Most places have 'mail.domain" as their smtp, so this works pretty much everywhere so long as you set the search domain right.


(search domain is in Network Prefs)
