Re: configuring mail server

First check sendmail process is running or not.
ps -ef|grep sendmail

or start
/sbin/init.d/sendmail start

and add your relay server in sendmail.conf file
use elm to try to send email from any user.

Hi madhudeepan,

- Modify file /etc/sendmail.cf

Change de line:

#Dj$w.Foo.COM

Dj$w.yourdomain.com

- Modify file /etc/rc.config.d/mailservs

export SENDMAIL_SERVER=1

- Execute:

/sbin/init.d/sendmail start

Re: configuring mail server

Hi,

- Modify /etc/syslog.conf file

For example, the configuration file:

kern,mark.debug /dev/console
mail.debug /var/adm/syslog/mail.log
*.info;mail.none /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
*.alert /dev/console
*.alert root,eric,kridle
*.emerg *
*.emerg @admin

logs all kernel messages and 20 minute marks onto the system console, all mail system messages to /var/adm/syslog/mail.log, and all messages at info and above, except mail messages, to the file /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log. Messages at alert and above are logged to the console and to the users root, eric, and kridle if they are loggedin. emerg messages are written to all logged-in users' terminals, and forwarded to the host admin.

- To make syslogd, re-read its configuration file, send it a HANGUP signal:

kill -HUP `cat /var/run/syslog.pid`
