Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

By default sendmail in RH7.3 is bound to 127.0.0.1
Try changing this line in /etc/sendmail.conf file to
O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA
O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp,Addr=Ypur_Real_ip, Name=MTA
nope it still doesnt work m8 ? i from what i read it said just comment that lineout and u should be ale to use the mail server aslong as u place the ip or host name in access file which i have done and i have also created the databse file for it .?
any ideas ?
ps i didnt change the .f file in /etc i changed the /etc/mail/sendmail/mc then vread the sendmail.cf file using the m4 command is this still ok?
If you've got errors why don't you post 'em, also look in the logs for your POP3 daemon and/or (/usr/adm|/var/log)/messages.
*On DeadRat you don't use M4 if you're using Linuxconf, then you've gotta use "mailconf --generate-conf" or something like that because else it'll nag on forever about rebuilding /etc/sendmail.cf because the md5sum for it is in /etc/linuxconf.conf
