ppp and sendmail configuration page

Post by Flav » Mon, 15 Feb 1999 04:00:00

I put my ppp and sendmail setup on internet. Recently I got several mails
concerning this setup and I decided to put it on the net. The address is:


I hope, it will be useful. If you have questions or other setups that work,
please mail them to me. I shall put it on my page to make something like a pool
for ppp and sendmail-configuration.

thank you




1. Multi ppp connection, sendmail configuration


My home linux connected to outside by PPP, one server has DNS (in INTERNET
domain), the other only has NIS (not in INTERNET domain).
I make both working. Now it comes to mail configuration.

If I just telnet to my machine, no problem at all. But since I run Linux,
I want to do something fancier -- handle mail in my home.

Now what I can do is get mail from mailserver by popclient and send mail
out by sendmail-8.6.12.

What I want are:

(1) depend on my connection, I want the mails sent out have distinct return
path (or something, when the recipient can reply to my prefer address), e.g.

if it connects to server1, when I send mail out, the mail has return path like

user1, user2 are my user id on the server1 and server2.

(2) Provided the (1) work, is it possible that two users on my home linux
have different set of names as (1)?


Happy hack.

PS. if sendmail can not handle it, how about smail?
