Sendmail Access.db


Hello

I understand how to use Sendmail's access.db and have it working ok. I can't anticipate every IP address and domain name my users are going to receive e-mail from. How can I set this up so that it will accept everything aside from the domains I want it to reject?

Thank you in advance

You are miss using the access db, that is used to configure which hosts can relay mail via your server and also to block mail from certains hosts.

I see, I'm thinking backwards. Only used to reject spam or to not relay mail from certain accounts.

I'm having a heck of a time finding documentation on sendmail and the oreilly book for it is very difficult to understand.

Thanks again

I like that, everything you need is easily explained. I'm going to explore this a little more, and if the rest of the site is as good, I'll just buy a copy of it on PDF.

Thanks for that link! Awsome tutorial!
