Re: CONFIGURING SENDMAIL

Shalom Miguel,

It really depends on a couple of factors.

How does the PC client get its mail?

If its a windows exchange server, then the DS directive in the sendmail.cf file might be enough to get the hp machine to relay to exchange.

If the PC gets its mail from some other kind of mail system, then the procedure is different.

No change from the basic sendmail configuration is needed to send outbound mail from the hp machine to the outside world. All that is needed is networking, Name resolution or a relay server.

Tell us about your mail environment and we'll help you.

Re: CONFIGURING SENDMAIL

Verify the /etc/rc.config.d/mailservs file:


export SENDMAIL_SERVER=1
export SENDMAIL_RECVONLY=0
export SENDMAIL_SENDONLY=0

If you want to do masquerade, you could set:

export SENDMAIL_SERVER_NAME=

To something.

If you want to use a SMART Host to forward messages, edit the /etc/mail/sendmail.cf file and add:

# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
# DS
DSmailserver.domain.com

If you don't use smart host, your dns configuration must be working correctly. Check your /etc/resolv.conf file and /etc/nsswitch.conf.
