Question configure sendmail, a small quest. ??


Do we need to have BIND configured before configuring sendmail ??

Pls excuse me, I am new to Linux.

Thanks and Regards,

unless you are using the server with sendmail to do dns, you do not need BIND installed at all. Sendmail will use the dns server specified in your /etc/resolv.conf file to do it's dns queries. If you are hosting your own dns with your own mail server, you will need to get bind working first. sendmail will not work without dns, but the dns server does not need to be the same server as sendmail.
