Re: Sendmail config in HPUX server

Hi,

Set the sendmail parameter in /etc/rc.config.d to 1
and
start the sendmail service

/sbin/init.d/sendmail start

Sendmail will start with default settings.

Re: Sendmail config in HPUX server

Before starting the sendmail deamon
edit the DS line in the /etc/mail/sendmail.cf file to specify the host name of the mail gateway:

DSmailgw.xyz.com

Re: Sendmail config in HPUX server

Hi jeevanandham

If the only think you trying is to do relay of your mails to a mail server.

The setup is very simple.

Edit the sendmail.cf and put you mails server in the DS line ex:

DSmy_mail_server.domain

Re: Sendmail config in HPUX server

On HP-UX, sendmail needs to be able to resolve the hostname you are sending the mail to, even if you have a smart-relay. The resolving might be bogus, as long as it gives a response. We, for instance, have hosts files containing lines like:
1.1.1.1 logistic.com
1.1.1.2 provider.com

As long as the IP addresses are not in use by anything you really need to contact, this works fine. (You might even use the real-world addresses to be sure it works fine)

Also, check out /var/adm/syslog/mail.log for messages regarding your message.

Every problem has at least one solution. Only some solutions are harder to find.
