I hate to keep harping on the same point, but do you have any error messages or log entries to show us when you try to send email to alias x (which then goes to xy@hotmail.com)? If you don't have any log entries, then you should probably set some higher logging levels.

How about something other than hotmail? Give another external mail server a try, maybe yahoo or eudoramail.com See if it's just the mail service that doesn't like what you are doing rather than a problem on your end.

Cool

So basically what you are saying is it just doesn't work with hotmail. You might try looking at your setup then. If you've got a dynamic IP some ISP's reject you. If you are not from a 'known' IP, they reject you. If you are relaying through another DNS, sometimes you get rejected that way too (it might appear to have come from your ISP, but it's altered since it actually came from you but your ISP sported the DNS lookup, sometimes you just can't over come that one without a buddy at the ISP ).

Cool

And as you say your host.domainname is a valid registered DNS entry.

So did you do the diagnostic test I suggested that you do in an earlier posting


How about doing something simpler first

> sendmail -v the_alias
this is the text of the test message
.

^ a period at beginning of the line followed only by <CarriageReturn>


If not why not, and can you try it now and post the results here

(obviously with your real user/mail name alias and real domain name
substituted with fictious names to protect your privacy.)

This is obviously a cry of desperation.

We do not understand why either unless you provide some diagnostic information.

Ss was asked on two previous occasions, please post the results of the sendmail -v test here (with your domain names replaced with fictious
ones for your own privacy).
