Since you have not stated it I assume that you are using the defauly out the
box sendmail as you mail server. Does the linux server not respond to the
win95 mail client with a " we do not relay" or some such error. This just
means unless you are connected to linux locally , sendmail will not forward
your mail to your ISP. Just add the line
192.168. ( or whatever subnet you are using - nb: don't forget the cr at
This will allow all non-local clients with ip addresses 192.168.*.* to use
sendmail as an smtp-router
ps: The reason your win95 clients can receive e-mail is because they are
using the pppd daemon , not the sendmail server.
