Re: mail send error!!!help me!!

Sounds like your DNS / resolver isn't setup right:

The domain name given in the HELO/EHLO command MUST BE either a primary host name (a domain name that resolves to an A RR).

You are sending as localhost.localdomain

If using sendmail, then add to the DM macro in sendmail.cf:

DMyourdomain.com

Hi,

You set your HP-UX like as a "gateway" mail server, So you need configuring the "Smart relay host" feature defined in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf file. For this you must be set DS variable:
DS

Where will be your smtp engine server and must be reachable from your HP-UX server. You can define this alias into /etc/file, and test it by ping command.

Then restart the sendmail service:
/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
/sbin/init.d/sendmail start

To try send an email from your HP-UX server to any valid domain address, i.e:
#echo "Hi, this is a test"|/usr/sbin/sendmail -v Yamashita.shujiro@CHN.XEROX.COM

Where "-v" option is the verbose option and allow you make a sending debug.

Any undeliveriable email will stored into dead letter file.

Rgds.
