smail primary host (me->mailhost->To:address)

Post by Mark R. Linds » Mon, 10 Jan 1994 05:16:57



I need to configure my system (running smail) to route all mail, or, even
better, all mail to any remote host, through a specific IP or FQDN address.
Is this setup described anywhere? I know how to do it with sendmail.cf, but
am yet unfamiliar with smail's setup.

Are you SOOOO paranoid as to think my opinions might be that of someone else,
even YOURSELF? What kind of IDIOT would it take to automatically assume some-
thing applies DIRECTLY to them? Hmmmmm?                 [2197667929]!mlindsey

 
 
 

1. smail+term >> transport smtp: IP address for localhost not found

I am trying to get smail+mailx send my mail over a
term connection. Local mail works fine. For the term
connection I got the config files from

pub/Linux/apps/comm/term/term/extra/smail.conf.tar.Z

on sunsite.

When I try sending an internet mail, I get the following
error message in the log file:

transport smtp: IP address for localhost not found

I have the following,  one line /etc/hosts file:

-------------------------------------------------
127.0.0.1        localhost
-------------------------------------------------

Is there  a mail guru out there who can put together a
bare-bones, no frills smail+term package using smtp
port for mail-illiterates like me to use happily.

I think this would be very much appreciated by all the
Term -a truely great software that made me switch over
to Linux from dos- users.
