Re: SMTP services

Edit the /etc/mail/sendmail.cf file to:

1. Set the Dj$ variable to the server's domain name.
2. Set the DS variable to the mail relay to which you want to point.

Edit the /etc/nsswitch.conf file to specify how to do DNS resolution. Note that if you want to use a DNS server you'll need to update the /etc/resolv.conf file with the IP address(es) of the DNS server for your domain.

Stop and start the Sendmail daemon.
/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
/sbin/init.d/sendmail start
No matter where you go...there you are.
