removing hostname from sendmail

[ Edited ]

Hello Everyone,

 

my emails show up as being sent from tim@iusghp5.ttksg.com   I need them to be tim@ttksg.com.

 

Does anyone know how to remove the hostname "iusghp5" from the address.

 

I have read through a ton of forum threads and I still cannot figure it out. I tried to set the "DM" paramater in sendmail.cf and that doesn't seem to help.

 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

 

Tim

Re: removing hostname from sendmail

This is called masquerading and DM (plus C{M}) can accomplish this. Also, mailx can be used by setting the -r option.

 

For DM and C{M} in sendmail.cf, it would look like this:

 

DMttksg.com

C{M}ttksg.com

 

Note that there are no spaces.

Using mailx, you can test masquerading like this:

 

mailx -r tim@ttksg.com -s testing123 tim@ttksg.com < /etc/issue

 

But with mailx, you can specify any email address.

 

mailx -r timmy@hotmail.com -s testing123 tim@ttksg.com < /etc/issue

Unfortunately when you use -r, you can't use any of the useful tilde commands.
