SendMail Split Domain Routing


(Full disclosure, this is a double post since I wasn't sure if this was considered a Newbie question. I can close the other thread if this belongs here)

Hello All!

I'm an average Linux user and didn't orginally set up SendMail but I have run into this issue. I have emails on RackSpace with the same address as emails on this Local Linux box. So both are "@company.com"

So when someone sends a message to user1@company.com (lets say they are on rackspace) and another to user2@company.com (they are on the SendMail Linux box) there are issues. I know the solution is split domain routing, and I've done that on RackSpace since there is a tool for it but I don't know how to do it on the Linux box. The users on RS can't email users on the local box.

Help?

I didn't see that second link, I'm looking into this now. This might be just what I needed.

Okay after reading it all, it seems to be what I'm looking for but maybe I'm missing something like how do you input where the other domain is located?

Honestly I've never messed with sendmail. This looks promising though http://www.itworld.com/article/27676...ubdomains.html
