It sounds like you are talking about different macro configuration lines in the sendmail.cf file.

Have a read through the sendmail and sendmail.cf man pages and see if that answers your questions.

Hello,

Cw -> file to get alternate names for the host

Fw -> file used to get the local additions to
class {w} (local host names)

DS -> smart relay host

DM -> who the host masquerades as

CE -> Masquerading will not occur for the root
by default; CE option can change it

Cheers,
