Hi All,

I am giving this a whirl on a machine at work. I've set it to use our provider to relay(right terminology.?) Ok, I set up an account in Evolution that uses smtp:localhost.localdomain and sent a mail to myself. I then checked with Thunderbird to see if the mail was successful, but, nothing. I'm sure I've missed something very fundamental. Below is the only section I changed in my .mc file,

dnl define(`SMART_HOST',`smtp.feel.to')

Anything else need adjusting/tweaking..? Cheers.



You need to delete the "dnl", which means "delete to new line". It's m4's way of commenting things out.

Hi All,

thanx Paul. Paul, is there a way to confirm that the sendmail.cf is now sending via smtp.feel.to as the test mail is still not arriving..? Cheers.

Hi All,

ok, I checked /var/log/maillog and found this,

Apr 11 16:51:06 localhost sendmail[7896]: j3B7p5JJ007893: to=<powderkeg snow email ne jp>, ctladdr=<coolboarderguy localhost localdomain> (500/500), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=relay, pri=120395, relay=sv.feel.to. [211.10.15.172], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (j3B7oLl09915 Message accepted for delivery)

That looks like success from my end, yes..? But, it's not reaching my inbox for the address I'm mailing to. Anything I should be double checking with this..? Cheers.

Your mail server is sending out mail with a bogus from: address of coolboarderguy localhost localdomain No sensible mail server will accept mail from unresolvable domains like that. You need to use a real domain name. Look up masquerading in /usr/share.sendmail-cf/README


Paul.
