Running RH 7
Virtual hosting mulitple url's with one IP Address

How do I configure Sendmail to seperate email with two users who have the same user name yet different url's?

info@domain1.com
info@her_domain.net

I have the Sendmail Book if you can refer me to the Chapter.

Thanks

I think I found the answer:

Pg.274 19.6.28

Virtial Mail - Add email account

Add domain to: vi /etc/senmail.cw
Add user to: vi /etc/mail/virtusertable
Add user to system: useradd user.name.com - d /anydirectory/newuser
change pw: passwd newuser
restart sendmail /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail restart

Virtual Hosting
 
Yes, that website says the book is great. I guess I need to buy it because I am finding that it is a useful tool.

How much do you know about Sendmail? I am having trouble confuguring my Virtual Domains also. I tried to use linuxconf to configure a virtual domain, and it messes with my /etc/mail/access file, which allows me to block spammers. So I am not sure how to setup virtual hosts otherwise.

Sure is fun, though

Aliases
 
How do you enable mail forwarding in Sendmail? The reason that my Virtual Host is not working is because I went in thru Webmin and created an alias called "webmaster" It would not let me create "webmaster@somewhere.com" So now, ALL webmaster accounts that hit that box go to my aliased account. I CANNOT use webmaster for ANY other domain hosted on that box. Even after I removed the webmaster account from the Aliases Section, it still doesn't work. I went so far as to uninstall and reinstall Sendmail, and stil nothing. So I would not suggest using this "Aliases" option in Webmin.

Do you have any idea how to create a mailbox, and forward to to another box without using linuxconf? I would rather not have 5 email boxes in my email program going at the same time.

Thanks
