Re: sendmail

Hi Vincenzo,

Are you trying to masquerade so that all your email appears to come from a different host rather than the host you are sending it from?

Re: sendmail


Your question is not very clear so this is based on what I understood.

Usually we use PCs as clients that depend on mail servers for mail delivery. So, we need to change the configuration on the mail server.

A typical example is using Netscape POP client on a PC connecting to a UNIX sendmail. We specify the UNIX server as the POP server. The PC's address will not come into picture.

To hide the IP address/hostname of the server, we can use CM and DM macros.

If specified DM macro in the /etc/mail/ will hide the hostname/IP address and send it with the domain name.

CM macro will not masqueride the IP address/hostname for the domain specified.

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try
