Sendmail issue?


I just finished installing an email server on my RHL9 box with these
directions. My isp is sbcglobal.net (dynamic). I can recieve mail no problem from anywhere, but i can only seem to send to sbcglobal.net and yahoo.com (since they are the same email server). Any thoughts? Thanks ahead of time!

Might be because other sites are dropping your mail because it comes from a dynamic ip address. You should relay your mail through your ISP's smtp server. Add something like
Code:
 define(`SMART_HOST', `smtp.sbcglobal.net')
to the sendmail configuration file.

Looks like the section entitled "Using sendmail as a client with AUTH" here is what you need.
