how to force sendmail to forward mails to another mail server?
Currently we have 2 machines for mail (a smtp server and a pop server)
Currently, sendmail accepts and sends out mail for our domain. We'd
like sendmail to just send out mails but when it receives mails, it
should forward it to our pop server. should we use mailertable for
this or some other method?
thanks for any info

i have a setup like this: box A ---> box B ---> sends to the world.
sendmail, solaris 9.
what is happening is as follows:
Application on box A generates mail (for the users, who can be from
anywhere) forwards it to box B which sends it out.
The box A is forwarding mail to box B, only for the users of the
domain, ie if there is a user is having a gmail id the mail is NOT
forwarded from box A ----> box B.
If i do a nslookup on gmail on box A it resolves properly.

It doesn't import Gmail, it accesses your Gmail account via their POP
server. It's getting your Inbox items by retrieving them from the
server, not by importing them. Any messages you send using Mail will go
to the Sent box, but as far as I know ...Mail will not send mail but will receive mail
At work I have a Wallstreet with Jaguar connected to a DSL line. Up
until a couple days ago I have been able to use my personal ISP smtp
address to send and receive mail. This is not the same company as the
DSL provider. A couple days ago I was able to receive posts but not
send them. I tried repairing permissions, and trashing the Mail prefs.
Finally I emailed my ISP and the response was that I have to use the
DSL carrier's smtp address. Yet, I've been using my personal ISP's smtp
address for about a year.
At home I use a dialup with the ISP and everything works fi...newbie question: sendmail doesn't send mail to external mail account.

i've just finished my first AUTH sendmail configuration, client cann
authentificate himself via LOGIN/PLAIN with TLS. I've noticed though
that sendmail doesn't pose any restraints regarding the mail from: tag.
lets say my domain is test.de, my loginname ist alex
now i cand send mails from arbitrary name@ test.de...actually from
arbitrary name @ arbitrary domain :)
Am i missing something here ?
what i would like is: user authentificates -> he is allowed to send

I am setting up a very secure Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server

First off, please forgive me as I am not very familiar with sendmail,
so my question may be worded poorly or the answer may be very obvious.
I am setting up a new mail server running sendmail as the MTA. I am
attempting to configure it so that anyone on our IP block can access it
and send mail via SMTP without a username or password, and to reject
mail from outside sources. Well, I can get it to reject mail, all
right: everything comes back with this error:
An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.7.1

I imported my email from an iMac g5 to a MacBook Pro running Leopard. I now
have an inbox, sent box, Trash, and underneath that a set of folders I'd
created in Mail on the iMac for various mail stuff.
Under that is a gmail heading (all my mail comes to Mail app from Gmail),
and under that another inbox, sent box.
Is there a way to meld these two inboxes? Last time I looked, a new mail
coming in showed up in both places, requiring me to select each in turn.
