sendmail queries part 2


Hi,

We are using Solaris 10 as sendmail gateway. We have just migrated our DNS recently. Now when a mail is sent, the system returned the following message:

# cat /etc/hosts | mailx -v <name>@<domain name>
<domain name>: Name server timeout
<name>@<domain name>... Transient parse error -- message queued for future delivery
<name>@<domain name>... queued

# mailq
/var/spool/mqueue is empty
Total requests: 0

I tried to stop/start sendmail but no luck to solve the problem.

Any pointer is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You need to fix this first - your mail server is trying to figure out the ip for the target's domain-name

Try
Code:
traceroute <dns server>


# and

telnet <dns server> 53
Check the mail log files.

Also, best to actually quote exact msgs etc and post in code tags https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...do=bbcode#code
