How to set up internet mail on HP-UX 11i?

Hi,

Would any experts tell me how to set up internet mail on HP-UX 11i or direct me to any installation documents? Thanks so much.

Best regards,
Kelvin

Re: How to set up internet mail on HP-UX 11i?

Do you want to send mail to the Internet? Or receive from the Internet?

You should take a look at /etc/sendmail.cf. That file configures the mail system for HP-UX and is fairly well documented.

Re: How to set up internet mail on HP-UX 11i?

-Get the ip address of your mail server. Add it into /etc/hosts. Test with nslookup.

nslookup mail_server

-Stop sendmail

killsm

-Update sendmail

cd /etc/mail
vi sendmail.cf

Search for the 3rd or 4th occurrance of 'DS'. Add the mail relay into /etc/mail/sendmail.cf where it looks like this

#DS
DSmail_relay

-Save and restart the sendmail daemon.

# sendmail -bd -q30m

-Test mail

#echo 'test' | mailx -s "TEST subject" your_name@your_domain.com

-Check mail.log for errors and attach.

-tail /var/adm/syslog/mail.log

Re: How to set up internet mail on HP-UX 11i?

Hi,

Finally, I fixed sendmail.cf for sending internet mail. When I tested with #sendmail -v int_address@domain.com, I got these messages
int_address@domain.com... domain.com: Name server timeout
int_address@domain.com... Transient parse error -- message queued for future delivery

Did I miss configuring anything in the Exchange smtp server? Or else?

Thanks for any help.
