mail sendmail sendmail.cf problems

Post by Tikkana Akura » Mon, 07 Mar 1994 03:39:36



I have been trying to configure this Sparc Server 1000.
The major problme I have is :
when I send a mail to a different machine, it drops the
complete hostname in the From: address. As a result the recipients
can not do a 'reply'.

OS: Solaris2.3

Attempted solutions on sendmail.cf
1. Commented out line: Dj$w.$m
2. Added line Dwcceb.med.upenn.edu (which is my machines full address)

This seemed to have solved the problem, if the sender is root.
But for all other users, the mail goes out without the full
sender's address.
It goes as
user.cceb
instead of
user.cceb.med.upenn.edu

Please help.
