Greetings all. I have a hopefully easy question for you gurus. I tried a search however my exact problem didn't come up.
I am using an internal company webserver and need the use of the sendmail feature for php pages. Sendmail.cf doesn't appear to be configured correctly tho.
It was previously setup with the domain of "localhost.localdomain". I was unable to even use the command line mail without getting a mailer-daemon error.
When I setup the domain to be a fully qualified domain name, it will work with local accounts that are on the machine, however it will not send internal mail to anyone other than those with an account on the box.
For example the Cw line of my sendmail.cf is (for example-- not REALLY what it is, but its a fully qualified domain.):
I can do a command line "mail bob" and the message will be sent internally, assuming "bob" is a user on this particular machine. But if i try
" I get a message that states "Unknown user... saving copy of message to dead.letter"
bob2744 is a valid email account for the company, however that physical account isn't located on this machine-- none of the email addresses are.
This machine is ONLY a webserver for the company and all accounts/ email accounts are on other machines. It seems to be checking to see if bob2744 is a valid account on the webserver box and then returning an unknown user error instead of just sending it.
I hope I was able to explain the problem clearly, however if I didn't, please let me know and I'll try to elucidate.
Thanx very much for the help!
