Exclamation prolbem configuration sendmail?


hi,
i have local web server mysite.com,i am trying to setup a local mail server using sendmail, i can recive mail but can't send, because sendmail cannot attach my domain with my user name like user@mysite.com but sending as user@localhost.localdomain, these are the only changes i made to /etc/mail files:
in sendmail.mc:
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=0.0.0.0, Name=MTA')dnl
LOCAL_DOMAIN(`mysite.com')dnl
in access:
# by default we allow relaying from localhost...
localhost.localdomain RELAY
localhost RELAY
127.0.0.1 RELAY
mysite.com RELAY

in local-host-names:
# local-host-names - include all aliases for your machine here.
mysite.com

in relay-domains:
mysite.com

in virtusertable:
@mysite.com user

after make this is the output when i restart the sendmail:
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail restart
Shutting down sendmail: [ OK ]
Shutting down sm-client: [ OK ]
Starting sendmail: [ OK ]
Starting sm-client: [ OK ]

any one can help please?

If "mysite.com" is a valid domainname owned by you, then has your /etc/hosts a valid alias for mysite.com on the localhost line? Else do this (remove outer quotes) post the output (cat /tmp/result): "echo "3,0 user@mysite.com"|/usr/sbin/sendmail -bt|tee /tmp/result".

hi unSpawn,
thanks for reply i have domain exmple.other.sc from dyndns.com (one posted i should not use mysite.com but exmple.com), this is the /etc/hosts:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain.com localhost

ADDRESS TEST MODE (ruleset 3 NOT automatically invoked)
Enter <ruleset> <address>
> canonify input: user @ example . other . sc
Canonify2 input: user < @ example . other . sc >
Canonify2 returns: user < @ exmaple . other . sc . >
canonify returns: user < @ example . other . sc . >
parse input: user < @ example . other . sc . >
Parse0 input: user < @ example . other . sc . >
Parse0 returns: user < @ exmaple . other . sc . >
ParseLocal input: user < @ example . ohter . sc . >
ParseLocal returns: user < @ example . other . sc . >

You probably don't pay for having them redirect email to you (in DNS speak thats "mx records"), and that's easily checkable: "echo "/mx exmple.other.sc"|/usr/sbin/sendmail -bt". That will probably read "getmxrr(exmple.other.sc) returns 0 value(s)".

> getmxrr(example.other.sc) returns 1 value(s):
example.other.sc.

while runing fc4 i configured the sendmail and it was working fine, but after installation of fc5 all the previous setup has gone, now i have problem.

OK. Two options then AFAIK. Uncommenting the "#Dj$w.Foo.COM" line to make it read "Djsmtphost.my.domain" in sendmail.cf (don't know the m4 macro for that one) or masquerading in sendmail.mc:
MASQUERADE_AS(`my.domain')dnl
FEATURE(masquerade_envelope)dnl
FEATURE(masquerade_entire_domain)dnl
MASQUERADE_DOMAIN(localhost)dnl
MASQUERADE_DOMAIN(localhost.localdomain)dnl
MASQUERADE_DOMAIN(my.domain)dnl
For each option you'll have to regenerate your config and restart Sendmail.

OK. Well, not OK. You did regenerate and restart I hope? How did you test this? Remote account I hope.
Do any headers show *any* change at all?

Two things, it seems:

... while talking to [127.0.0.1]:
>>> MAIL From:<user@localhost.localdomain> SIZE=517
<<< 553 5.5.4 <user@localhost.localdomain>... Real domain name required for sender address

Somewhere it doesn't translate or resolve and I can't figure out what. Now this isn't how it's sposed to be, but could you try and add something to /etc/mail/genericstable?: "localusername(tab)name@resolvabledomainname".
So that would look like "shams(tab)user@example.other.sc". Regenerate, restart Sendmail, retry.
Maybe test too if remote email gets delivered at example.other.sc.


501 5.6.0 Data format error
Dunno what this is, but lets get the other thing going first.

Hmm. Not the "best" solution I would have hoped for but OK, if it works and breaks nothing else...
