I don't get the point of this line
Quote:

do you mean you have configured different mail server for this hostname etl.com?
or you are trying to sendmail to user@etl.com?

keep in mind that for sending mail you will have to use fully qualified hostname.

IN NS mail.etl.com.
mail.etl.com. IN A 10.200.2.28
I don't see any MX record here but anyways

your last two lines should be soething like this
Code:
IN NS mail.etl.com.
mail IN A 10.200.2.28
now you can use the
Code:
MASQUERADE_AS(`etl.com')dnl
Code:
#m4 sendmail.mc > sendmail.cf
#service sendmail restart
feature of sendmail so that when you send mail to user1@mail.etl.com the mail will be received to him as root@etl.com


I am not very sure to answer your 2nd question

please post your sendmail.mc file


and clear me this point
when you send mails at user@mail.etl.com what is the userid of the received mail and what do you want it to be?
is it user@etl.com?

create a MX record in your DNS server and use the same as your smtp provider
use this feature
Quote:
dnl define(`SMART_HOST', `smtp.your.provider')dnl
Code:
define(`SMART_HOST', `kumar.etl.com')dnl
Code:
[root@mail ~]# cat /var/named/chroot/var/named/domain.for
$TTL 86400
$TTL    86400
@               IN SOA  mail.etl.com.       mail.etl.com. (
                                        45              ; serial (d. adams)
                                        3H              ; refresh
                                        15M             ; retry
                                        1W              ; expiry
                                        1D )            ; minimum

                IN NS           mail.etl.com.
mail            IN A            10.200.2.28
                IN MX           10 kumar.etl.com.
now when you sendmail to user@mail.etl.com the received mail appear as user@etl.com

and if any mail is undelivered you can check the mail of root@mail.etl.com
you will receive a mail delivery notification automatically
