hi.

i have read the first few replys here and the rest i quickly skimmed over.
ok first are u fetching the mail from a pop3 server? and is that a catch all? so u can send anythink@yourdomain.com and it will get to that pop3 server u have ur mail account on.

if so u simply need fetchmail to bring the mail in which i guessing you all ready have.

2ndly u need to edit your sendmail.mc file which sound like you have. to what i dont know.

i simply used the defult sendmail.mc file but added the line

MASQUERADE_AS(`yourdomain.com)
as this will masquerade your local server name into the name for ur mail server. other wise the mail going out onto the net will never be accepted.
(replacing yourdomain.com with ur mail domain.)
so your sendmail.mc file will look like this

Code:
dnl# This is the default sendmail .mc file for Slackware.  To generate
dnl# the sendmail.cf file from this (perhaps after making some changes),
dnl# use the m4 files in /usr/share/sendmail/cf like this:
dnl#
dnl# cp sendmail-slackware.mc /usr/share/sendmail/cf/config.mc
dnl# cd /usr/share/sendmail/cf
dnl# sh Build config.cf
dnl#
dnl# You may then install the resulting .cf file:
dnl# cp config.cf /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
dnl#
include(`../m4/cf.m4')
VERSIONID(`default setup for Slackware Linux')dnl
OSTYPE(`linux')dnl
dnl# These settings help protect against people verifying email addresses
dnl# at your site in order to send you email that you probably don't want:
define(`confPRIVACY_FLAGS', `authwarnings,novrfy,noexpn,restrictqrun')dnl
dnl# Uncomment the line below to send outgoing mail through an external server:
dnl define(`SMART_HOST',`mailserver.example.com')
dnl# No timeout for ident:
define(`confTO_IDENT', `0')dnl
dnl# Enable the line below to use smrsh to restrict what sendmail can run:
dnl FEATURE(`smrsh',`/usr/sbin/smrsh')dnl
dnl# See the README in /usr/share/sendmail/cf for a ton of information on
dnl# how these options work:
FEATURE(`use_cw_file')dnl
FEATURE(`use_ct_file')dnl
FEATURE(`mailertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/mailertable.db')dnl
FEATURE(`virtusertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable.db')dnl
FEATURE(`access_db', `hash -T<TMPF> /etc/mail/access')dnl
FEATURE(`blacklist_recipients')dnl
FEATURE(`local_procmail',`',`procmail -t -Y -a $h -d $u')dnl
FEATURE(`always_add_domain')dnl
FEATURE(`redirect')dnl
MASQUERADE_AS(`yourdomain.com)
dnl# Turn this feature on if you don't always have DNS, or enjoy junk mail:
dnl FEATURE(`accept_unresolvable_domains')dnl
EXPOSED_USER(`root')dnl
dnl# Also accept mail for localhost.localdomain:
LOCAL_DOMAIN(`localhost.localdomain')dnl
MAILER(local)dnl
MAILER(smtp)dnl
MAILER(procmail)dnl
also if you wanting to get a mail client like outlook to conenct. by defult sendmail shoul not acept relaying for ur server. so in the file access under /etc/mail/ simple place

ip of pc in lan RELAY

so if ur PC onlan was 192.168.1.3

192.168.1.3 RELAY


hope this helps you out.

I dont know, im totally lost now, if someone can help me, post a message, it would be a lot better if someone had aim, msn, icq, or yim so we can send IM instead of leaving messages. I have never got problems like this before.

I have written a thorough walkthrough of configuring Sendmail using Webmin. I think it's an easy way for a newbie (like myself) to setup Sendmail. It took me a while, but I have a fully functional email server now for my domain that has smtp (to send) and pop3 (to receive). You can get to it from here:

http://www.mindfrost82.com/forums/sh...=&threadid=647

I have Yahoo and AIM, and my s/n on both is mindfrost82. Feel free to message me and I can try to help...but my walkthrough should help you alot!
