Re: Sendmail command

Manuales,

Is DNS set up on the Tru64 server and does it work properly?

Does '# nslookup mydomain.com' return the IP address?

You could put mydomain.com and its IP address in /etc/hosts.

How can i review the following:

" ....Also, ensure that the mailserver ip address is resolved by hosts, instead of DNS. Maybe your DNS server has old information. Verify your DNS server...."

Hi,

If the DNS settings are correct then try configuring your mail server using mailsetup or mailconfig.

Thanks and regards,

Re: Sendmail command

If you have a DNS server use sysman to configure the system as a dns client. The dns server is configured in /etc/resolv.conf. Also, /etc/nsswitch.conf and /etc/svc.conf must be configured to search in DNS (sysman does all this for you). You must be able to do nslookup before it works.
