RE: sendmail configuration



Parse error - that's strange, perhaps your configuration file is
mangled.

When did you install sendmail? What version? What OS? Has sendmail ever
worked on this server before? Who has tried to configure it before?

It should look something like this:

[root@server logs]# sendmail -v user@domain
Subject: test
..
user@xxxxxxxxx Connecting to smtp.domain via relay...

After you've made those changes, search inside the newly

for:

Hi Gef,
Thanks a lot for your inputs.

I made below mentioned changes to the submit.mc and configured
submit.cf.

But still the sendmail uses the relay=root@localhost and the
stat=queued
,
mailer=esmtp.

yes, I just need to send mails .please let me know if i am
missing
any
other
configurations

Thanks,

Are you using mail to both receive and send, or only send?

If you're using it to only send mail, then do the following:

Go to /etc/mail, here you should find a file called
submit.mc

Edit this file and update the parameter and add something
like
this
anywhere to the file:

define('SMART_HOST','relay.domain.com')dnl

And if there's an entry containing something like 'SMTP',
'127.0.0.1'
etc, comment it out by preceding it with dnl (or removing it
or
whatever).

Then type the following:

# m4 submit.mc > submit.cf

(You'll need to ensure two packages are installed for this,
sendmail-cf
and m4)

If you're using sendmail to receive mail, submit
sendmail.mc/cf
for
each
submit.mc/cf above, then restart sendmail.

Hi All,
I am trying to configure sendmail on Linux server.

After the configuration the maillog show below message:

The mail status is showing as queued which makes me think
that
the
sendmail
configuarion is not properly done.

how to I make the existing mail=esmtp to mailer=relay and
relay=root@localhost to relay=<smtpserver.domain.com>

I am new to this topic. Kindly give your inputs which ll be
very
helpful
to
proceed further.

Thanks,
Kalyan
