I got sendmail up and running. I can send mails to any user on my machine
and I can send a mail to any user on the machine of my ISP. I can also send
mails to anybody outside the net but only if I'm online.
Don't think I'm stupid. Here is my configuration:
2 IDE HD's one of 420Mb and the other with 320Mb
PPP-connection to my ISP
Sendmail version 5.67b + IDA 1.5
All seems to work fine. All I want is to queue the mails until i get
my PPP-connection up. But when I send a mail and I'm not online, the
mail get bounced back to me and says "Unknown host or network
unreachable". I know that the target network is unreachable because
I'm offline. This aplys only to such target addresses who are not
in my /etc/hosts file.
Current I'm starting sendmail with the following options:
sendmail -bd -q10m -os -odq
Maybe that's wrong. I'm a little confused whith the command line
options of sendmail. The man page isn't very clear here.
Again: What must I do to make sendmail queuing
my mails until I'm online without bouncing me back immediatly?
Is that possible?
Any help would be apreciated.
