Post by Harish Murth » Fri, 22 Jan 1999 04:00:00


Im using Slackware and am able to connect to the intranet and use telnet
When using fetchmail it gives the error

fetchmail -k -u harish mail.server.name
Skipping message 1 not flushed
Skipping message 2 not flushed
Skipping message 25 not flushed
reading message 26 of 31(364 header bytes) fecthmail:SMTP

... Sender Domain must exist
fetchmail : SMTP error: 553<root>... Domain name required
fetchmail: SMTP transaction error while fetching from mail.server.name

also cannot send mail thru 'mail'or 'pine'.
The mail bounces back.
BUT can send/recieve mail thru netscape comminicator.



Please remove the SPAM-NO in the e-mail before sending it.

sults from this site only.

This url helped me get my sendmail.cf file configured correctly.


The fetchmail man page should give you plenty of directions on the
fetchmail side.  I believe there is also a fetchmailrc man page.

1. fetchmail/sendmail problem

I am trying to configure fetchmail to download my mail from my isp via
modem and put it into my mailbox.  As I understand it, after fetchmail
downloads the mail, it invokes sendmail to send it to my local mailbox.
I'm at the point where fetchmail can pull the mail, but sendmail is having
trouble doing its job.

I get the following error in my /var/log/syslog:

SYSERR(bin):  Cannot exec /bin/mail.local:  No such file or directory

Am I missing this file or is sendmail looking for the wrong file?  BTW,
while testing this out, fetchmail downloaded two messages, the system
error above was written twice to the syslog, and the mail appears to have
been lost.

Thanks for any help.
