Problem with the sendmail,

Hi,
"SEND MAIlL" on Hp-Ux 11i is not working, unable to send mails.

The problem seems to be related with domain-relay something.

What are the area I can look into, to know the exact problem and resolve it?

Please ...

Thanks & Regards
Syed

Re: Problem with the sendmail,

Hi Syed,

First and foremost try this option

# sendmail -v xxx@yyy.com < /tmp/file

Send the mail to your email ID. If it does not reach you then send the output to the forum.

Re: Problem with the sendmail,

Hi,

Ok, it seems sending should be no problem.
Is there any message in /var/adm/syslog/mail.log ?

What happens if you try to send mail from the commandline, to user on the same machine and on an other machine ?

Re: Problem with the sendmail,

Hi,

Relaying denied. So you need to check your relay server if he allows to relay for your other host.

Re: Problem with the sendmail,

Hi,

Could also be your mail sever cannot be found by your relay server.
