firewall sendmail configuration
model -- 550
Question -- needs instruciton on setting send mail
Desc: email outside the RISC to the Internet is not working.
customer needs info on how to setup the sendmail.cf file.
Act: The Commo web page contains info...
Q: I want all external mail routed through my mail "firewall".
A: You will need to add a line to your /etc/sendmail.cf file specifying
the name of this "relay" machine. The line you need to add is :
By default, this line is commented out. You can uncomment it and
change "RelayHostName" to the name of your firewall machine.
PLEASE NOTE: On AIX 3.2 and AIX 4.1 after making any changes to the
sendmail.cf file, you must run the commands 'sendmail -bz' and
'refresh -s sendmail' to recompile the configuration file and force
the sendmail daemon to reread the configuration file. The command
'sendmail -bz' is not supported on AIX 4.2.
we changed the DRRelayhost to: DRfirewall.delta.com
which is the firewall system and should handle all
incoming and outgoing mail for them.
to test, we run:
mail -v firstname.lastname@example.org
which sends a note with verification afterwards...
the info was similar to an email sent from IBM out to the internet...
$ mail -v email@example.com
