sendmail to exchange alias


Hello all,

I have a sendmail question. When I do

sendmail user@company.com < /tmp/foo

that works just fine, but when I try to do

sendmail alias@company.com < /tmp/foo

none of the users in the alias on the exchange server receive an email. Is there something I need to configure on the linux side, or is there something that needs set on the exchange side? (I am able to use my exchange mail to send a test email to that alias)

You should check the sendmail logs (usually in /var/log/maiilog)
Also run
Code:
sendmail -bv alias@company.com
and see what you get

Regards

This has been solved. The server never got set up with permissions to the exchange server (needless to say that admin is in trouble).
