If(!!) your local host uses sendmail then editing the DS entry (under # "Smart" relay host (may be null)) should suffice (you do need to restart the service). Only you know the real FQDN (or IP) needs to be used, this is just a dummy example (mail is send to a host called other.mail.host): DSother.mail.host

Setting up the other side (the MTA on other.mail.host) is more complicated. You first of all need to figure out which MTA is used (sendmail, postfix, exim, .. , ..). After that you can configure it to accept mail from the outside.
i wanna forward mails through sendmail to another mail relay in which every setting is configured told by you.
plz tell me how to configure mail forwarding in sendmail?

I beg to differ....

You started a new thread to get the answers you want/need, so it does seem that you are trying to "understand the issue".

Cross-posting the same issue is against the LQ rules. In this case the original question asked in this thread was off base, so I'll ask the mods to close this oner and leave your other thread untouched.

Reported for closure.
