Sendmail query

Friends,

Need your help in below situation.

Current Setup: We have a sendmail relay server
relay.server which does the internal mail mapping between different clients of its own.
Example if user tom on server mars wants to send an email to jerry on server earth.

he send an email to jerry.earth@domain.name.com. The relay server converts it to jerry@earth.domain.name.com .

Relay servers just does the internal mail redirection and for external emails, send it to an lotus notes smtp gateway.

Now the problem. We have to remove the relay servers and all the internal email mapping needs to be done either by the servers themselves or by the lotus notes.(smpt gateway)

I believe this is not possible from the lotus notes side.

Any ideas on this ?

Ciao.

Shalom,

lotus notes smtp gateway is quite capable of being a relay server for HP-UX originated mail.

The lotus notes server needs to be configured to accept relay. With all such situations, its best to configure by fixed ip address of the sender.

See this document for configuration changes to sendmail to put a proper domain name on outbound mail.

Re: Sendmail query

Steven,

Thankyou for your suggestions.

In my servers I do not have any macro file (.mc) so the only option for me is to manually configure the configuration changes on sendmail.cf file.

Can you let me know what changes neeed to be done on the sendmail.cf file so that mail can be sent to the lotus notes server and lotus notes can then be able to relay it to another server in same domain.

I suppose your changes are to be done on the individual host server. We have hundreds of them.

Hi Iman,

In /etc/mail/sendmail.cf file should have lotusnotes server entry as relay host like below.

Ex:
DSabc.lotus.com
