sendmail config >no relay< for everyone

Salut
I have to config a Tru64 v5.1b server with sendmail 8.11.1.
How exactly can I avoid the "world" can use the server as a relay?

regards
Dominik

Salut,

I believe when you fire the #mailsetup

and chose the non-quick setup. there is question for something like " want to set it up as relay ? "

check this one out

If you want to protect your server not to be used for relaying have a look to www.sendmail.org. There are some features implemented well documented at the given link - look for "relaying" and "spam protection".
