Re: Send Mail Configuration

1. make sure that /etc/mail/sendmail.cw have following entry
hostname
hostname : actual name of host.

2. modify /etc/mail.sendmail.cf file as
follows ( modify two entries)

Dj$w:domain name
DS(Exchange server ip)

e.g. for primustel.com domain
Dj$w:yourdomain.com
DS11.0.0.2

3.modify /etc/nsswitch.conf files to have following two lines:
hosts: files
aliases: files

4. after all these corrections run following programm:
newaliases

5. now stop and start sendmail:
/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop

6. test for sending mail:
e.g.
sendmail -v youremail@yourdomain.com < /etc/group

Cheers

Re: Send Mail Configuration

Depends on what you want to do - out of the box sendmail works....

http://docs.hp.com/hpux/onlinedocs/B2355-90147/B2355-90147.html

Has a section on sendmail.
