Hi,

1.) take a look at sendmails access file, there you can configure which domains will be allowed to send/retrieve mail.

2.) Mail for an alias will be automaticaly transfered to the physical adress the alias is mapped to, there will be no copy.

For detailled information take a look at sendmail.org, there are plenty of documents containing brief description how sendmail works and what files to configure in which case.

Hi,

which option in sendmail.mc you are looking for?

Did you check sendmail.org?
