I have installed and set up a sendmail MTA on a linux RH 7.3
distro. I run a server for a small online open source community;
mainly just a small group of friends that all needed various developmental space.
What I want to do is allow relaying to only these people
(they aren't all real psyched with the current commandline
MUAs which was my approach to eliminating relaying
I understood the documentation as saying that I could
be specific in my listings within the access_db, i.e.:
but this doesn't seem to work.
If I remove the "some_user@", and just leave the "somehost.somedomain" part it works fine.
The problem with this, obviously, is that I am now
allowing relaying from that entire domain, which
ideally, what I want to do is just set this so that if the connecting
party is a user on the server, than he is allowed to relay.
I tried setting: FEATURE('relay_local_from')
but this had no effect, and doesn't strike me as overly
I am rebuilding the access_db with the command:
makemap hash /etc/mail/access < /etc/mail/access
and the config with the command:
m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/sendmail.cf
I would be extremely greatful to anyone that has any advice.
