You can use mailx or elm as a client. The sendmail process must be running and accepting connections on port 25.

Make sure that you have you MS exchange server defined in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

e.g
DSmymail

mymail is my exchange server name

After making changes:
/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
/sbin/init.d/sendmail start

Hi,

If your windows mail server have not POP or IMAP protocols you can't.

If you have a POP or IMAP server you can do it with netscape if you want a graphical client. If you are confortable with a text based client i recomend you pine: http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Networking/Mail/pine-4.44/

Linux?. Yes, of course.

Here's a start, others may have more particulars on the sendmail command.

On the HP machine:
- Add a record to /etc/hosts reflecting the exchange servers IP address and name.


- Update a record in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf to include the Exchange servers name, in the file search for the following line then add your Exchange server name after DS.
# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
DS

- Restart sendmail:
/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
/sbin/init.d/sendmail start

The sendmail command will allow you to create/send the message. I use the mail command to pick up mail on an HP box, there are many to choose from though.
For details try:
man sendmail
man mail

Hopefully somebody can add to this as I'm about to fall out of my chair.

- edit /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
DS.

- start sendmail daemon:
# /sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
# /sbin/init.d/sendmail start

- edit /etc/rc.config.d/mailservs
export SENDMAIL_SERVER=1

- verify
# sendmail -v test@
