Configuration help with sendmail


Apologies if many of these point have been asked in other threads. Not too bright on these things.

I have three servers. One in our DMZ hosts MailScanner. One in the DMZ hosts OTRS. One in our network runs Scalix. Both use sendmail as the MTA.

Inbound mail reaches MailScanner which is then forwarded onto Scalix or OTRS by use of /etc/mail/mailertable as thus:

#	smtp:[]
#   smtp:[]
This works fine, however I have I have two problems.

1. Mail for domains other than that in mailertable still seems to find it's way through MailScanner to the DMZ. It's not processed and there is no open relay but I would like to stop it reaching Scalix by ditching it in the DMZ.

2. Mail sent from Scalix is sent direct and not sent back to the DMZ and MailScanner first.

I do not know how to make these two things work. Can somebody please help me? I am not an expert on SENDMAIL and need some pointers.

Thank you!

Hi Marky

Looking at the inbound issue first.
Can you please post some logs showing an incoming message that you do not want forwarded along with how the mailscanner dealt with it.

I will see if i can come up with some ideas.
