Hai Sherlock,


add your mail server to the /etc/hosts like :


192.168.0.84 mailserver mailserver.domain.fulladdress


go to the vi /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

grep for the word DS

and change it like

DSmailserver

where mailserver is the alias name set in hosts file.

and try sending the mail now..

let me know if u have any errors.


Yusuf

Hi

I tried it the below way

sendmail Sherlock@xyz.com<Mail.txt

And the mail.txt contains

date : ...
To : x@y.com
Subject : ..
from : Z@G.com

body of the message

From command line....it is working fine...

But i am having problem executing it from the java program..



String cmd="/usr/sbin/sendmail xyz@SS.com <Mail.txt";

try {
Runtime.getRuntime().exec(cmd);
} catch (IOException ioe) {
System.out.println(" exception while sending the mails ");
ioe.printStackTrace();
}

Regards
