An observation to pass along:
Was trying to get email working between 2 in-house HP computers. I could get
email within the machines to work, but not between the machines. I finally
setup the 2 machines to use DNS (instead of /etc/host files), pointing to yet
a 3rd (Linux) box as the name server. Finally, got email working between the
2 HP boxes with DNS turned on.
I setup the DNS because of error messages that indicated the remote host
couldn't be found (even tho telnets and pings between the 2 hp boxes using
their canonical names worked great). The test email messages were simply
This wasn't a sendmail problem exactly. But I would sure like to know why I
couldn't get email working until I setup DNS.
