sendmail config help


hi.
im setting up mutt as an email client. getting fetchmail working w/ it was a breeze but im having some troubles with sendmail. the thing is that sendmail is running fine and i can send emails but since im using my own smtp server and sending from my isp (@adelphia.net) without it ever even going through the isp, i am basically forging the email address. without completely learning to configure sendmail (that thing is huge) how can i get sendmail to take any outgoing message it gets from mutt and send it to mail.abs.adelphia.net:25 (my isp's smtp server) which will then take care of delivering the message the proper way.

thank's in advance.

In your sendmail.cf file there should be a section similiar to:

# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
DS

Change the 'DS' line so that it points to the relay that you want it to use... so it would look like:

DSmail.abs.adelphia.net

(it is important that you do not put any spaces in that line)

Then restart sendmail and see what happens

Sendmail

Sendmail is supposed to be intimidating. I might suggest that you take a look at postfix (to replace sendmail). Personally, I find it much easier to use.
