Does anyone know if its possible to define sendmail so that fully-qualified
domain names are not used. My dilemma is that when I define the official
name of host to be : Dj$w ... the canonical name returned is [hostname]
which is what I want, but when mail is sent and the remote sendmail identifies
itself, the local end complains that a local configuration error exists and
more specifically, hostname [of the local box] is not recognized as local.
When I try to setup a domain name : DDfoo.com and specify the official name
of the local host as : Dj$w.$D, the dialogue between the sendmail tries
to impose the local domain on the remote system which I don't want to happen
much less implement this way.
How is it possible to use plain and simple (if that's possible with sendmail)
dialogue within the configuration so that the local box is simply recognized
by its shortname (uname -n) and can send mail to repective boxes setup
in similiar fashion ? Or am I asking too much of sendmail here ...
Any input would be appreciated
