Question sendmail.mc and sendmail-cf problem.


Hi all,

I hope someone can help me set up sendmail. Here is what I've done - and the errors!

in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc I added (uncommented) the line

define('SMART_HOST','smtp.ntlworld.com')

then ran

make -C /etc/mail

an error message told me that sendmail.mc had been modified and that I needed to install sendmail-cf for the changes to take effect.

I then installed sendmail-cf (using fc package manager) and ran 'make' again, as before, and got:

make: entering /etc/mail
make: nothing to change for: all
make: leaving /etc/mail

Needless to say, I still can't send e-mails.

What am I doing wrong? where do I store my NTLworld (smtp) username?

I'm not sure how the Fedora scripts work - but you can manually add the info to sendmail.cf if someone else here doesn't provide the script info:
Code:
DSsmtp.ntlworld.com
