Talking Easy Question about sendmail for GURUS


When I use sendmail and send an email to my outside email address it comes from (root@localhost.localdomain)

What do I need to edit in linux to make it say root@muppet.headquarters.com ?

Have you tried putting this into your sendmail.mc file?

define(`confDOMAIN_NAME', `muppet.headquarters.com')

You may also need:

MASQUERADE_AS(muppet.headquarters.com)

I'm too lazy to look up the details of these two things right now.

Does this need to go in any particular section? Or does it not matter?

you can also edit the original sendmail.cf and look for the line

# my official domain name
Dj

I think this also does the trick..
