Lightbulb Make sendmail use a different server


I have a redhat server running, but I have another server handling my email. Lets say mail.mysite.com

On my server (just mysite.com), when I use sendmail, I would like sendmail to connect to mail.mysite.com and use it.

How can I do this?

Thanks so much!

Ya, I figured it out

In your sendmail.mc file, uncomment
define(`SMART_HOST',`your.outgoingsmtp.com')
and fill out your smtp on that line

Then do:

# m4 sendmail.mc > _sendmail.cf
# mv -f _sendmail.cf sendmail.cf

and restart sendmail
