Re: Sendmail As SMTP relay server

vi /etc/mail/access

Explicitly list every server you wish to allow to relay by ip address.

form:

ip_address RELAY

example:

192.168.0.40 RELAY


If the server is exposed to the Internet be very careful. Also make sure if its running an httpd server all mailform scripts are secure.


Once done, build the macro databases and pusth the daemon with this script:
