Re: mailx not working ...


Your subject suggests that you have a problem emailing (probably to the internet from your server). Is that correct? If so, why do you believe that your 'hosts' file is an issue?

Re: mailx not working ...

'ip address' FQDN Alias's (* more then one alias OK *) 'hostname1' 'hostname2'

However, this indicates a problem with the Nameserver and Resovlver or BIND network protocols, and has absolutely nothing to do with the SMTP / sendmail network protocols. Related files are:
