I have been slowly milling through the process of learning some sendmail. I would like to verify something regarding its capabilities.
I know if I have a domain MYDOMAIN.COM I can have username@MYDOMAIN.COM
. If I also have MYSECONDDOMAIN.COM I can have mail going to that too as username@MYSECONDDOMAIN.COM
What I think I am understanding now, and steer me in right direction if I'm off, is that *username* is the same account?
If my friend JOE has an email account/user account on my sendmail box called "joe" then, if I send mail to joe@MYSECONDDOMAIN.COM
the mail goes to the same place.
I can't have one machine running sendmail have different accounts for username@MYDOMAIN.COM
? and username@MYSECONDDOMAIN.COM
What I was looking for was ONE BOX that could handle email for domain1.com, domain2.com, domain3.com, etc but not have them intertwined. I may be confusing the matter more here with how I wrote this but hopefully you understand what I mean.
I'm just wondering if I needed to have a separate sendmail box for each domain I wanted to have full featured email capabilities.
