sendmail (dont just ignore it 'cause its got sendmail in the subject :P)

yes, I'm having problems with my sendmail config!

I need some suggestions as to where I can go to set up my sendmail to accept emails for my domains....

Recipient: <>
Reason: 5.7.1 <>... Relaying denied
(I'm hosting this on my machine, and I cant send to it :P)

if their any help (and the answer is quick - I'm not asking any of u guys to config my sendmail for me - I just wanna know where I can go to read up for some help), here are a couple of my files...

root@cypher:/etc/mail# cat access
#/usr/sbin/makemap btree /etc/mail/access.db < /etc/mail/access OK OK

root@cypher:/etc/mail# cat domainalias
#/usr/sbin/makemap btree /etc/mail/domainalias.db < /etc/mail/domainalias alan pauline daveb daveb bob alan bob


I used the following to define

FEATURE(virtusertable, `btree /etc/mail/domainalias')dnl
FEATURE(nouucp, `nospecial')dnl
FEATURE(access_db, `btree /etc/mail/access')dnl
define(`LOCAL_MAILER_PATH', `/usr/bin/procmail')

Just a guess, but try changing the /etc/mail/access settings from "OK" to "RELAY" and add one for localhost.
