What's up,everyone! By the way,I have a thorny question (to me) regarding Sendmail relay.
I am using Sendmail as my MTA.However,my ISP blocks port 25.As a result,I cannot use my computer as a mail server.So,I intended to relay my mail to ISP mail server.The problem is that I don't know how to configure this complicated mail server.Would anyone give me some clue?
Look through your sendmail.mc file and comment out the line it tells you to. Currently, sendmail is trying to contact localhost, but sendmail ain't root, so it fails. I am not at my box so I can't be more explicit than that. You can google for the problem, too. Loads o' folk have had the same problem.
By the way,thanks for you guys helping me out many times.
My sendmail still cannot help me to relay all the outgoing mail to my ISP mail server.The error message is the same as my previous post.I have modifiedhosts.allow,hosts.deny but it makes no changes to my problem.And cnjohnson,I have sendmail.mc before,I converted to sendmail.cf,however.It's all good before for my Internal LAN.If it comes to relay mail to my ISP mail server,I've got this problem.
By the way,my ISP blocks port 25,will this limitation make me can't send mail to my ISP mail server?
I'm not sure whether my problem is really similar to the one discussed here, but I think I may ask:
I have a very small LAN of windows clients connected to a linux server (ip-masquerading for phone line internet access). i want all outgoing mail to be stored on the server, until it is sent alltogether. so the mail clients (say ...
...) connect via smtp to my sendmail demon on my host, say:
from there e-mails should be "relayed" (right term?) to my isp's sendmail system, say
but as far as i got the picture, as one != localhost, sendmail denied relaying of my mail so as to tease spammers. All right, i don't want to support spamming at all, but couldn't localhost just accept mails from one.gallactica, two.gallactica, ..., because their ip-addresses are static.
would it be wise to set up such a configuration, and, assuming it is, how could i do it with webmin (or by hand).
