Re: sendmail configuration

I take it you want to relay all mail out of your Linux box through a Windows Exchange server?

If so, then you'll want to look at the SMART_HOST settings in '/etc/mail/sendmail.mc', and re-make the sendmail config file ('cd /etc/mail;make'. This needs the 'sendmail-cf' package installed).
One long-haired git at your service...

Re: sendmail configuration

Let me know...

Do you want to send mail with linux, across the Windows 2000 Mail server?

If this is what you want it's easy:

etc/mail/sendmail.cf
and
edit this row:

edit the file
# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
DSsmtp.server.com

where "smtp.server.com" is the name of your mail server (must be an smtp remailer)

If this isn't you want, give more detail.

Bye!

Re: sendmail configuration

Linux is no magic solution for spam/spyware/viruses - you need to install & configure antispam/antivirus engines.

In fact, I won't suggest you to migrate from MS Win mailserver to linux without serious learning/investigating/tests/pilot.

MS Exchange is not just mail server, but groupware server too.

Sendmail is just MTA; you should add POP3/Imap4 server and groupware server if you want to get MS Exchange functionality.

Re: sendmail configuration

Shalom,

spamassassin is very effective and it ships with the OS.



http://www.mailscanner.info/downloads.html

The link above uses spam assassin and an integrated virus detection software, signature based. I won't say it works, but I'm going to test it in my lab. If it works it provides a viable alternative to pay for software.

dovecot does pop3 and imap very nicely on linux and works well with sendmail or postfix as a MTA, mail transfer agent.

The more you do on Linux, the happier you will be and your license fees will be lower.
