Re: sendmail problem



First of all, I'm using evolution as the client.  I have no idea what
you mean by mechs, but I guess I'm using whatever the Fedora Core
default is, unless that is altered in /etc/mail, and I have no idea what
'saslauthd' is.  I checked the dates on the files in /etc/mail against
the dates in my backed up /etc/mail from the server PC and found that I
had not extracted them over correctly.  I have now fixed that.  Now when
I try to send mail from outside my domain to inside it, I get the mail
returned from my domain's postmaster saying 

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<michael espersunited com>
    (reason: 553 5.3.5 system config error)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
553 5.3.5 espersunited.com. config error: mail loops back to me (MX
problem?)
554 5.3.5 Local configuration error

Please don't flame me.  I'm under a lot of stress.  This network is all
I have and it's not working right at the moment.  I'll try to delete all
traces of replying to other threads in the future, but I can't use
evolution's address book because the address-book backend crashes every
time I try to use it (a topic to be saved for a different thread) and I
can't be expected to remember email addresses for the twenty or so
mailing lists I'm subscribed to...
