snedmail not delivering email!!!!!

Post by bag.. » Sun, 10 Sep 2000 10:15:01

I have installed and configured RH 6.2 as my DNS, and Mail Server.
I have followed some sample instructions and configured sendmail for
smpt and imap. I can use outlook express to connect to the mail server
from a Microsoft machine and send messages. However, sendmail can only
send and receive email to and from the root account. All other emails
go to the none-deliverable basket. This of course used to work until I
changed something in the file. I don't know what. Any
changes made to the cf file were done using the Control Panel network
Can someone tell me why this happens.

You probably need to turn relaying on for your domain in /etc/mail/access,

# Check the /usr/doc/sendmail-8.9.3/ file for a description
# of the format of this file. (search for access_db in that file)
# The /usr/doc/sendmail-8.9.3/ is part of the sendmail-doc
# package.
# by default we allow relaying from localhost...
localhost.localdomain           RELAY
localhost                       RELAY                       RELAY

# Relay for my domain.  I believe hosts need both forward and reverse DNS
# resolution for this to work.                    RELAY

# You can also add a class A, B, or C.  AFAIK, for a subnet you'd have to
# add each IP if you didn't want the whole class C in there.
