Sendmail configuration on Slack 9.0


Hello all,

I've been scratching my head about sendmail for a while now. I'm not entirely sure what it's for, but I have a feeling I'll need it to execute the PHP command mail(), not to mention using Pine.

I've searched the net for some tutorials configuring sendmail but everything is either RedHat or SuSE specific. I've tried to follow a RedHat tutorial and ran into a brick wall on the first point it covered.

The sendmail.org is great for compiling sendmail, but I can't seem to find anything which would help in terms of configuring a pre-compiled copy (which is what I'm assuming Slack 9.0 comes with) to work.

If anyone knows of a decent, step-by-step guide to configuring sendmail on Slack 9.0, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Alex

try recreating your database access file /etc/mail/accass.db, with the command:
"makemap hash /etc/mail/access.db < /etc/mail/access"

If you're on stock install of slack 9.0, you should be able to send (and receive) email on your LAN, as well as send only on your WAN, after that.

I spent most of my day just serching the net for this ... I know your sendmail associated pain
