Hi, I'm a Linux newbie(although a veteran Windows user, and I'm comfortable both in the Windows CMD and the bash shell), and I need help configuring sendmail.
I don't have a domain name of my own, but sendmail issues a warning about the hostname localhost whenever I run it. I'd rather use someone else's SMTP server, but my ISP has left me in the cold, so I need to run my own. I've noticed emails bouncing also, when I send email through sendmail; I think this may or may not be related to the localhost domain.
I tried setting it in the config file yesterday, and it worked. However, my email kept bouncing. I decided to leave it till today. However, I forgot to note where the config file was, and now I'm not sure what to do.
I searched the forum, and found that there should be an /etc/mail directory, but I do not have it. I also do not have the sendmail.cf file, either in /root or in my home directory.
I tried using locate on bash to find it, but all it turned up was documentation and PHP scripts for my webpage development.
Can anyone help?
