I'm speculating, but it just doesn't sound like a good idea.
A Smarthost is the RFC compliant and best practice for this requirement. Perhaps you should explain what problems you expect from using this method so we can help you resolve that issue and give you a solid solution.
Thanks for your reply.
My basic problem is with sendmail server, in the smart host feature i use xyz ; is hostname of other pc. while sending email to other at that time it keep this xyz
as hostname of the mail server i.e helo xyz
I want to change it .Instead of this xyz it should display my real domain name like abc.a.in
so think if i am able to send my smtp traffic to other pc without using smart host feature
is mail scanner system.
i test using sending mail to this id firstname.lastname@example.org
it show different hostname.
if send email without using smarthost then it show correct hostname.
i hope u understand my problem.
