SENDMAIL is so widely used then why does noone know what the heck is wrong.


THis is my error when sending mail.
[root@mail log]# mail -v rauconsulting@yahoo.com
Subject: this is my sub
body
.
Cc:
rauconsulting@yahoo.com... yahoo.com: Name server timeout
rauconsulting@yahoo.com... Transient parse error -- message queued for future delivery
rauconsulting@yahoo.com... queued
[root@mail log]#

also i can only receive mail to myhost.domain.com and not domain.com.
I added domain.name to local-host-names.

Well i figured most of it out. Last problem is sending a mail from outlook. Sending a mail from the server works.

The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'rauconsulting@yahoo.com'. Subject 'tesat', Account: 'Adam Rau', Server: 'myhost.mydomain.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 5.7.1 <rauconsulting@yahoo.com>... Relaying denied. IP name lookup failed [10.0.0.2]', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79

Thanks for a prompt reply.

will you please provide me with the full details? Do I need to create a relay-domains file ? If yes how should I specify this in the .cf file?


Thanks once again !!

Oh i thought you were trying to help me.


Silly me.
YES you have to create a relay-domains file in /etc/mail.

In my file I put my hostname.com in the file and also all IP Addresses that can send mail. If you are using outlook/etc on a client using ip address 192.168.1.1, then add 192.168.1.1 to the relay-domains and it will solve this error.

I have some documentation at home on this. I took notes on what is the necessary steps that need to be taken for sendmail to work. If you are still having problems, please let me know and Ill paste my document here. It may help you.


FYI - I did not have to change any .cf file.

Thanks
Adam

FWIW, I use sendmail as a relay for a large number of individual networks at a school system. My sendmail.mc file follows. /etc/mail/access contains "192.168" to allow everyone on my private network to send mail thru it.
