Internal Mailservers


hi everyone,

I have simple doubts about sending/receiving mails with two mail servers(rhel5).

Here is the scenario:

network1- server1 act as a Mailserver for network1(say 192.168.0.0).
same for ,
network2 - server2 act as a mailserver for network2(say 192.168.1.0).
router is configure for the communication of these networks.

websites : site1.com in network1
site2.com in network2

Each network has 3 clients.

sendmail config: clients in network1 send/receive mail only in netwrok1
same for network2 clients.

Now i wants to do : clients in network1 want to send/receive mails from network2.
SO i modified
the smarthost options in sendmail.mc file as

Network1 server1:mail.site2.com
for
Network2 server2:mail.site1.com
but thats not working. showing error transient parser error...
messages queued for future delivery.

how to solve this problem ?
thanks in advance

Hi,
thanks for the reply.
Yes, two master servers are properly configure for the network1 and network2. I can ping across the networks.
but send/receive mails only network1 OR network2.
thanks in advance.

hi,

when i restart it showing some progress. Now i can see messages are sent (stat=sent,without showing any error) across the network by verifying its var/log/maillog. But the problem is the intent recipients are not getting messages. where do i check for that ?

hi friends,

successfull ping doesn't mean the mail can be send to recipient.

can you succesfully dig -t mx [site] from each other ?
