Sendmail config for 2.5

Sendmail config for 2.5

Post by Michael C Du » Sat, 01 Jun 1996 04:00:00



        Hi,

We have a client who we are attempting to configure sendmail properly
for.  Currently the site contains 5 Solaris 2.5 workstations, one of
which is the mail exchanger for the domain.  The mail exchanger machine
appears to work properly, but the others are having trouble.  When
someone sends a message from another machine it produces the following
header:



Received: from pow.isogen.com ([204.181.196.34]) by ns1.unicomp.net
(4.1/SMI-4.1)
        id AA10059; Thu, 30 May 96 15:56:23 CDT
Received: from oof.isogen.com by pow.isogen.com (SMI-8.6/SMI-SVR4)
        id PAA03419; Thu, 30 May 1996 15:59:11 -0500

        oof is a workstation which contacts pow as it's mailer.  How can
I get the headers originating from oof to include just the domain (i.e.

        Also are there any good on-line references to configuring
sendmail (in general or specific to Solaris 2.x)

                                                Thanks

Sendmail config for 2.5

I don't run Solaris 2.5 sendmail, but it's based on sendmail 8, so the
following advice should work okay.

In your sendmail.cf file, look for a line like the following:

  DnMAILER-DAEMON

Somewhere around (just above, usually) this should be a line beginning
with DM.  If there isn't, add one, of the form

  DMbletchly.com

where bletchly.com is the domain you want your mail to appear as
originating from.

I don't know, but you should buy the O'Reilly sendmail book.

Let us pray:




 
 
 

1. sendmail-config vs. sendmail RPMS?

I just got the RPMs for sendmail 8.9.2, and figured updating was a good
thing to do, as the updates incorporate better security.  (I haven't gotten
the bugs out of using my Linux box with my ISP yet, but I'm going to take a
whack again once I get my new ISP account set up)/

I'm using RH5.2, which had sendmail 8.8.7 and sendmail-cf 8.8.7 as RPMS.

The new version has RPMs for sendmail, sendmail-cf, and sendmail-config.
According to the query in the RPM for sendmail-config, "This is needed,
eventually there will be multiple configs to choose from."

However, the files it contains  (list follows) conflict with those installed
by sendmail.

Do I stick it all in, using the --force option in rpm?  Do I leave out
sendmail-config?  Why is there a sendmail-config anyway?

Thanks in advance.
