Sendmail still point to the old mail host

Hi all,

I'm facing sendmail problem in 1 of our alpha servers. We set up a new mail server which is 172.16.112.121, and added into the server's host file.

However, when sending mails out from the server, it still use the old mail server - 172.16.112.59.

Is there any solution on this? Thanks in advance!

What, exactly, did you add to "the server's
host file"? (You mean /etc/hosts?)

Did you tell sendmail about the change?

It's just possible that the actions you need
to take would depend on the Tru64 version. A
good place to start might be:

sizer -v

then:

man sendmail
