Wink Problem with sendmail

Hi !

I configured sendmail on RH 9 to act as a mail relay.

sendmail acceptes connections in port 25 and says something like " mail accepted for delivery" whan I telnet on port 25 but the mail doesnt get in to my internal mail server ( from the DMZ to my intermal net ).

what I missed in my configuration ?

Also, please be VERY careful setting up mail relays. Make sure that the only place it will route mail is to your internal server. Last thing we need is yet another open relay for spammers to abuse out there.

checkout what /var/log/maillog says about it. See where it went or what happened to it.

Also, we can't see what you are missing in your configuration when we have no idea about your configuration. In other words, we need more info.
