I've got a machine on the local network, with a local DNS name (which is

My problem is that I cannot kludge sendmail into behaving nicely and allow
the periodic(8) mailings to get through.
The machine is named psyche.local
domain1.com is a domain that we own, but this machine has nothing to do
with it. I want the emails delivered to [EMAIL PROTECTED] This is not an
email server in any way - All I care about it getting my periodic output.
Here are the settings I'm trying :
root [EMAIL PROTECTED]
andrew [EMAIL PROTECTED]
root : [EMAIL PROTECTED]
192.168.2.10 psyche psyche.local
With all the configurations I've tried, emails are rejected by my
smarthost with an error like "sender address [EMAIL PROTECTED] invalid;
domain does not exist".
What I'd like to do is find a way to alter sendmail's perception of my
hostname. Ideally, this would only affect sendmail and nothing else.
I can't possibly be the only person running such a configuration. How have
other people in the list worked past this?
You don't need to go to such efforts. The stock sendmail mc file should do
fine with just a couple modifications. The details are here:
Check your name resolution order in /etc/nsswitch.conf that you check files
192.168.2.10 psyche psyche.local.
so it is a fully qualified domain name.
You can forward all mail in /etc/mail/virtualusertable
with a line such as:
@psyche.local [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Be sure to recompile your virtualusertable.db
