Question SENDMAIL, POP3 et al

Hi all,

I'm running Red Hat 9, with Sendmail. I've configured POP3 access. However, it only works with the domain name I was allocated by the company that hosts my server. How do I get it to work with a domain I'm hosting off my box?

i.e. atm, in my e-mail client, I specify "" as my POP3 server, how can I make it so I can specify "" as my POP3 server?

Hi Rob,

I don't understand your question! is your POP3 server... (can't really change that...)

Maybe you want your email sent as

Sorry jonas, wasn't in the most articulate of moods at the time of posting! I found the solution in the form of virtual hosting, added the necessary line to /etc/mail/virtusertable and I was away!
