I have a RH62 system. I upgraded to sendmail 8.11, and am administering it
for the most part with webmin 0.80. The machine hosts several slave DNS, but
is set only as localhost/localdomain presently. For discussion's sake,
"abc.com" is my personal domain, and "cbs.com" is one of several domains I
will host on this machine, but neither are entered in the eth0 host fields,
again its localhost/localdomain only.
The additional (non-root) user I created during install, "hal" will
"sam" I have created with webmin will not receive email. I can't see any
difference between the two types of user, except that "hal" belongs to his
own group, and "sam" belongs to a group "webusers" I created, also with
Here's the error message (edited out names and IPs) that sendmail returns
Unable to deliver message to the following address(es).
256.256.256.256 does not like recipient.
Giving up on 256.256.256.256 .
The aliases are set up very simply and consistently in webmin, for both
"hal" and "sam". The mailbox viewer in webmin functions perfectly for hal,
but nothing arrives for sam and other 'webusers'.
Do I need to issue some special rights to webusers to get them to recieve
mail? I have logged in with "sam", the account is functioning perfectly
