Linux outgoing mail only

We have sendmail disabled on our servers, but still have a need to at least send mail messages to another mailhost.

How can mail be setup to send mail messages only from the servers to our mailhost server..

Thanks

Re: Linux outgoing mail only

The default sendmail configuration in Red Hat based systems does not allows incoming connection. If you don't use Red Hat, ensure that you have the following options in your MC configuration file:

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl

We don't want any incoming mail messages, but we want to be able to send mail from a server to a mailserver that can accept and forward mail....

Shalom,

chkconfig sendmail off

Use cron to process outbound mail with the sendmail -a -C command to process mail build up in the queue.
