Hi, can somebody point me or explain steps needed to run sendmail.
I have a small network at home with 1 windows 2003 server, 2 laptops and 1 linux FC 4. I come form windows world, setting SMTP service in IIS is visually done. I read some articles on the web but they are all a little bit complicated and does't make me upand go.
I have no internal DNS, no domain (only work group). I want my linux machine be able to send me emails to my work mail (alerts).
My linux machine is called "Linux",its IP is 192.168.1.11, I have changed the following 2 lines in sendmail.cf
# O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp,Addr=192.168.1.11, Name=MTA
when I try to send a mail as follows in a terminal :
I get a mail in the root file :
Received: from localhost.localdomain (linux [127.0.0.1] (may be forged))
by localhost.localdomain (8.13.7/8.13.7) with ESMTP id m0PFr0MV023339;

Received: (from root@localhost)
by localhost.localdomain (8.13.7/8.13.7/Submit) id m0PFqxsY023338;

From: root <email@example.com>
Subject: testing email
This is from red hat
I think maybe it is necause "root@localhost" and it should be changed to a valid mail. If yes, how can I change it that my mails apear as if it were from firstname.lastname@example.org
