Re: sendmail DM masquerade

Hi,

This can easily be done within your client. For example, in pine, you can set a role and pretend you are whoever you want. So, no matter what your real username is, you can always send emails from anotheruser@anotherdomain.com

Re: sendmail DM masquerade

Try add the following line into your /etc/mail/sendmail.mc file

MASQUERADE_AS(domain.com)

This states the domain that you want to masquerade as.

Once the line is inserted create your sendmail.cf file from this file by typing

m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/sendmail.cf

You should shy away from editing the sendmail.cf file directly. This is always a better way to go.

Then you just restart sendmail by typing

service sendmail restart

All should be well.

Hope it helps
