mail between Unix hosts

I configure the sendmail.cf file to take Exchange as an mail server. However, how do I send mail between Unix hosts?

Any ideas?

Re: mail between Unix hosts

Hi there,

You can try to use sendmail command, below is example :

NOTE : replace with Unix hostname

# sendmail root@
test only
.

Hope this can help you.

Re: mail between Unix hosts

I configure DS to mail server as same as other Unix hosts. How do I send a mail from one Unix host to other Unix host's user mail account?

Re: mail between Unix hosts

I added an entry of "O HostFile=/etc/hosts" and ran the makemap to make a db file. Then I can send mail to other Unix hosts.

Re: mail between Unix hosts

Hi there,

After you configure the sendmail like other HP-UX systems by configure sendmail.cf, sendmail.cw, /etc/hosts, /etc/nsswitch.conf.

Did you already restart the sendmail services ? Please follow the command below :

# /sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
# /sbin/init.d/sendmail start

And try to send email between unix hosts 8-)

# sendmail @
test only
.

FYI, you can find some document about configuring sendmail from knowledge mine, you can use this keyword : 'sendmail configure'

Hope this can help you.
