Question Two domains for sendmail

I have got sendmail set up and working for domain "" with the mail server setup as "".

I want to change the MX record for another domain, "" from my ISP to my "" box.

So I want my "" box to send and receive mail from "" and "".

What kind of config changes do I have to make to sendmail and the box to accomodate this system.

Look in /etc/local-host-names file - you can put aliases for your server there.

ooh, man, since I got to know Postfix, I stopped using sendmail.
sendmail config files are not suitable for the average human.
Also, postfix has the same functionality as sendmail, with less bugs and holes.
