Sendmail

By bubloob_13 ·
Dear All

I am having linux 9, installed dns, and just configured the sendmail to accept and delivers mail locally for my LAN user. Using outlook express i am able to send mail to other users. But other user is not getting any mail. I don't know where all the mails were going. My outlook is not giving any error msg, it's simply delivering my mails.

Configured DNS, realying also configured in access file. This is my current sendmail.cf configuration. my domain name (not registered) is i2ibangalore.com.

So...

Mail is delivered from clients on your LAN via SMTP to this computer, right?

Have you looked in the logs of the mail server to see what happens after that?

1) Check your /etc/syslog.conf (or /etc/syslogd.conf) to see where syslog is putting mail messages

mail.* /var/log/maillog

2) Open a terminal and type (as root):

tail -f /var/log/maillog
(or whatever the name of your mail log is)

3) send a message from a client
4) see what the sendmail program logs

If everything seems in order, look in the mailbox directory to see if the mail message is waiting for delivery (most likely /var/mail for sendmail).

We need more info to help!
