How do I limit which domains sendmail can send to?


I need to limit sendmail from sending mail to anyone but our domain. I do not administer our corporate firewall or routers. I'm sure this is an easy fix but I haven't found it yet.

I want to limit which domains sendmail can send mail to, are you sure the above will do so? It doesn't look like it to me.

No, the above will certainly won't do that.
It defines the hosts that can connect to a service (if you use gentoo tcp-wrappers should be installed and the tcpd use flag should be set for this).

But that is not what you want.

hosts.allow and hosts.deny simply limit hosts connecting to the machine, not which domains sendmail can send to.

I got webmin up on said sendmail box; any ideas on how to accomplish what I need done?

abhijeetdutta, what I'm trying to accomplish is setting the sendmail service to only be able to send mail to 2 domains. Not any other domains.

I'm not running BIND (not my network), will editing named.conf still work or do I have to go through setting up a BIND server?

Yes, just block outgoing traffic on the relevant ports to the relevant destinations. This solution requires that the destinations have fixed IPs.
