I try to use the user-database feature of sendmail to map my FROM
There are a couple of ways of doing this. This describes using
the "user database" code. This is still experimental, and was
intended for a different purpose -- however, it does work
with a bit of care. It does require that you have the Berkeley
"db" package installed (it won't work with DBM).
First, create your input file. This should have lines like:
Install it in (say) /etc/userdb. Create the database:
makemap btree /etc/userdb.db < /etc/userdb
You can then create a config file that uses this. You will
have to include the following in your .mc file:
but it didn't work. What *.mc file is used by the FreeBSD-2.0.5R
sendmail? It's not freefall.mc i think.
I also try to solve the problem using the installed sendmail:
'sendmail -bd -q30m -oU /etc/userdb.db' but without success and I think
it's not possible with only the alias mechanism. But again in detail:
In the moment I have an alias of the following form
so mail send to lars.koeller arrive uphya001 which is my login name.
so that a reply goes to lars.koeller and not to uphya001? I think this
is exactly the problem the user-database should solve!
Who can help or has solved this problem?
Thanks in advance
