Unhappy Sendmail error


Hi friends,

I had configured sendmail on linux 5.2, Iam using public ip and my domain is registered[linuxforfreshers.info]. I am facing a issue that when I mail with the user sumit@linuxforfreshers.info then I am able to do it. But if somebody tries to send mail to the same user then it bounce backs. I had made the entry of domain in /etc/mail/local-host-name and also I put ok in /etc/mail/access.
The mails are working properly with in LAN. But not able to work on WAN only I can send mail but not able to recieve mail.
What else I need to do.
Please guide me.

It looks like a smtp.secureserver.net configuration problem:
Code:
The original message was received at Mon, 15 Nov 2010 23:37:53 -0600
from [117.201.4.210]

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<sumit@linuxforfreshers.info>
    (reason: 550 #5.1.0 Address rejected sumit@linuxforfreshers.info)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to smtp.secureserver.net.:
>>> RCPT To:<sumit@linuxforfreshers.info>
<<< 550 #5.1.0 Address rejected sumit@linuxforfreshers.info
550 5.1.1 <sumit@linuxforfreshers.info>... User unknown
Presumably smtp.secureserver.net is your mail service provider so asking them might be a good start.

Thanks for this information.
But what I did is, I justed purchased the domain from them and then I put the forwarding rule that if somebody types www.linuxforfrehers.info then it will forwarded to my laptop. I had'nt purchased any email address from them. This user and website is created at my end.
I wants to know what configuration should I do on my laptop so that I will be able to receive mail too.

Can you give more details about "I put the forwarding rule"? There is no publicly visible DNS record for linuxforfrehers.info or
Code:
c@CW8:~$ nslookup linuxforfrehers.info
Server:		127.0.0.1
Address:	127.0.0.1#53

** server can't find linuxforfrehers.info: NXDOMAIN

nslookup www.linuxforfreshers.info
Server: 10.0.0.1
Address: 10.0.0.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
www.linuxforfreshers.info canonical name = linuxforfreshers.info.
Name: linuxforfreshers.info
Address: 64.202.189.170
Name: linuxforfreshers.info
Address: 58.68.49.86

or dig -t mx linuxforfreshers.info

They had provided me a cpanel where i can forward the request to any public ip. I am using public ip 58.68.49.86.

What is the DNS service at 10.0.0.1? That is a private address so it is a local device (but could get information from a public DNS service). For mail to get back to you linuxforfreshers.info needs a publicly visible MX record. You can test this by using a public DNS server instead of 10.0.0.1, for example by dig @4.2.2.2 linuxforfreshers.info MXThat does not point to your public IP address as 10.0.0.1 does:
Code:
; <<>> DiG 9.4.3-P5 <<>> @4.2.2.2 linuxforfreshers.info MX
; (1 server found)
;; global options:  printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 56471
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 2, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;linuxforfreshers.info.		IN	MX

;; ANSWER SECTION:
linuxforfreshers.info.	3600	IN	MX	0 smtp.secureserver.net.
linuxforfreshers.info.	3600	IN	MX	10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.
