I just installed sendmail and a caching only DNS server now when i
send a mail from my linux server it says this:

The original message was received at Sun, 24 Jan 1999 16:21:30 -0700
from CALCLAB.PIE.EDU [199.86.23.112]

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to mail.pie.edu.:

I know i mispelled CALC.PIE.EDU as ALC.PIE.EDU but where ??

I have checked "/etc/sendmail.cf", "/etc/sendmail.cw",
"/etc/HOSTANAME", "/etc/named.conf", "/etc/hosts", "/etc/host.conf",
"/var/named/pz/127.0.0", "/var/named/199.86.23",
"/var/named/calclab.pie.edu"

anyidea where that misspelled name is at ??

thanks,

I belive if you rerun sendmailconfig and setup Null client forward host it will
solve your problems.

Presumably your DNS is a bit more than a caching DNS.

FWIW I can find no record of either pie.edu. or calclab.pie.edu. in
DNS. Have you registered these with the appropriate authority? Or is
it something you've just made up?

Is mail.pie.edu. using the above server, which knows about
calclab.pie.edu., as it's DNS server? From DNS queries it appears
199.86.23.112 has the name Pentium02.ncrfc.nws.gov, why don't you use
that as a hostname?

You can force sendmail to accept unresolvable domains by adding

FEATURE(accept_unresolvable_domains)

to your m4 file and rebuilding sendmail.cf. But I suspect a better
idea would be using a valid hostname in the first place.

I just got it to work, I still have no clue where I misspelled calc as
alc but i setup up a SMTP relay from a registered domain.  Thanks for
the help

P.S. pie.edu or calclab.pie.edu don't really exist.  They are
fictional server names

1. sendmail 8.6.8 and sendmail.cw

As a result of the latest security related postings regarding sendmail,
I've got the sendmail 8.6.8 binary and configuration files (from our local
security group) but I can't find anyone to tell me how to set up
/etc/sendmail.cw for my site. Following the example file, if my machine
were public.x.org, /etc/sendmail.cw would look like:

public.x.org ftp.x.org

My machine, however, has no internet alias. What should be in my
/etc/sendmail.cw?

If you're reading this from comp.mail.sendmail, please respond via e-mail
since this is not one of my regular groups.
