    I believe that is my problem. This server is not on the public net here.

    It's not a matter of having the network provider adding an MX record, I
    can have that done quickly (I'm in charge of that), its that if I add an
    MX record it's not going to point to a mail server, and that is
    something my network admin won't have/allow, if only for her FUD about

    While "" has a public zone file, it does not have an MX
    record or an A record for "mail" or other such name. Only "www" as those
    servers are the only ones exposed on the public net.

    So, how do I turn sendmail into a relay for outgoing mail? Or whatever
    that is called. :)

    Many thanks,
