Re: how can i configure sendmail ,so i can accept mail on my pc's outlook?

Hi China,

Do you want to sent Unix mail for to and to , etc.

Or do you want to sent Unix mail for to and ?

Or something else?

Could you please explain in more detail what you're trying to acheive?

I am assuming that you can send e-mail from user1 on hp1.hp.com to user2 on hp1.hp.com.
I am also assuming that hp2.hp.com is an exchange server.

Edit /etc/mail/aliases and add:

user2 : user2@hp2.hp.com

Then execute the command newaliases.

You should then be able to send an e-mail to user2.

If you can't check /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log on hp1.hp.com (the machine sending the e-mail)for errors and check the ecentlog on your exchange server.

Re: how can i configure sendmail ,so i can accept mail on my pc's outlook?

One thing I've discovered is that Outlook (without Exchange Server) can't send an email via sendmail that is unqualified, i.e. even though "fred" is local to the server you need to send the email via Outlook to "fred@mydomain.com" so that it can be delivered. Not sure if this is part of the issue here.

Our Outlook users have all created big address books so they don't have to always do all that typing.

Other mail clients such as Eudora have a setting for what domain to automatically add, if the user does not qualify the address (i.e. it is a local address).

If anybody knows how to do this with Outlook let me know, as we all POP into sendmail as well.
