The entry is for compatibility with a Microsoft peer-to-peer networking. It shouldn't hurt anything. The, and entries are probably not what you want unless the route to these subnets should still be out eth0 (the NIC). My take on your original posting was the eth0 was no longer in use.

NXDOMAIN is dig's way of saying it can't find an IP address for internal.coxagri.com. See if you can get this boxes name and IP address to resolve through dig. Sendmail likes to have it's hostname resolvable through DNS.


Thanks for the insight - I'm working on it over the weekend when everyone has gone home.

The public ip from this address is an ADSL link name rather than internal.coxagri.com

Having had a quick look at other people in the same scenario I have some reading to do. If you have any suggestions I'd be happy to hear them.
