sendmail does not work through webmail


Sendmail works through outlook just fine. But sendmail will not work at all through webmail. When using webmail, the mail stays in the mailque, until it times out, it never sends the mail; but when using a pop3 client, such as outlook, it works like a charm. I have a static ip going to my router, from there I run a static nat ip to my linux 9.2. All my mx records and ip's are pointing in the right direction. I am a semi-newbie, i love Linux, please help.

Check your access databse to make sure that the box has permission. You might also check your firewall to verify that you have permission to access.

One thing i need to expalain. For some reason, postfix worked thruough webmail, but not thruough a pop3 such as outlook, and i had trouble with the relaying. Sendmail is the opposite problem: it works great on relaying, and through my pop3 outlook, but it just hangs, and will not send through webmail services, and/or directly from the webmin sendmail server. I am using 9.2 powerpack, with paid support, but the support team told me that the free 2 month support is not for server settings, and they don't support sendmail. I might have to pay alot of money for support if i can't get an answer here.

the error is this 553.5.5.5 system config error. I believe it is looping back to itself, can someone tell me how to find the hostname of my machine, i forgot it. Thank you

The access file is located in /etc/mail . You use whatever text editor you feel comfortable with. It gives instructions in the file on where to find the proper format. I have a manual by O'Reilly on Sendmail so that's what I use. You might consider getting that manual if you need a good reference as it is very exhaustive. Probably more than most need but you can get what you need out of it and don't bother with the rest. I am not sure that it is the access file but it might be a place to start. The hostname (as far as sendmail is concerned) is in the sendmail.mc/sendmail.cf file. Any changes ytou make need to be done in the sendmail.mc file and then the m4 engine to produce the new sendmail.cf file.
