1. Local Mail Delivery With Smarthost
I have a three computer network. One is a Linux machine, one is
a Solaris machine, and one is a Windows 95 machine. The Linux
machine has the modem and I run diald on it to bring up the
connection to my ISP. I am also running a pop server on the
I use Eudora on the Windows 95 machine to mainly send out email
with. It typically goes to the Linux machine and is queued there
until my link comes up. From the /etc/ip-up script, I issue the
command "sendmail -q" to send out our mail.
I have also configured email on the Solaris machine to go to the
Linux machine and stay queued until the connection to my ISP comes
My question is, how do I configure sendmail on the Linux machine
to not only store mail there, but to also send copies to the Solaris
Right now, when mail comes in, I run Eudora to pop the mail off the
Linux machine. I can also run fetchmail on the Solaris machine
periodically to grab email from the Linux machine.
Whenever I try and send local mail, everything goes to the Linux
machine. From there it tries to go out to my ISPs mail server.
I'm sure this is the result of having defined a Smarthost on the
Is it possible to have both a Smarthost for all external mail to go
to and have local mail stay within my setup? Is the problem that I
have used my ISPs domain name also in my local network?
For example, my ISPs domain name is muscanet.com. In my /etc/hosts
files on both the Solaris and the Linux machine are set as follows:
192.168.100.10 homer.muscanet.com homer (Linux machine)
192.168.100.11 marge.muscanet.com marge (Windows 95 machine)
192.168.100.12 bart.muscanet.com bart (Solaris machine)
If I were to change my domain name to something else and just
masquerade as my ISPs domain name would that help?
Thanks for your help.
