Multiple Domains?

Hi Guys,

I have 5 registered domain names, all of which are now being handled by our NT mail-server... Under Linux (7.0), is it possible to have sendmail manage these multiple domains and if so, how would you go about setting up them up???

Smile yes its possible

Hi ,

yeh its possible ...... iam not sure about the exact way ....

1.check out the function of the /etc/ file.
2.the virtusertable feature does exactly what u want to. However sendmail must be compiled to do this ... u can use m4 however.

There is this concept of virtual domains ..... read the FAQ on for more details.

Here iam pasting some text i found on the NET :

The virtusertable & virtusertable.db files
A virtusertable is a database that maps virtual domains into news addresses. With this feature, mail for virtual domain on your network can be delivered to local, remote, or a single user address.

The domaintable & domaintable.db files
A domaintable is a database that maps old domain to a new one. With this feature, multiple domain names on your network can be rewritten from the old domain to the new.

Hope this helps.

The crisis has been delayed, so I got some time to do some more R&D, thanks for the help none-the-less. I'll give it a bash and let you know the outcome.....
