Hi Malcolm. You are welcome, of course :) If you stick around with Sendmail, it may be interesting to search through the archives. There are a few posts which may be interesting for other setup details of your outgoing email, like email address rewriting (commonly called `masquerading' in Sendmail documentation). A few pointers to get you started are: http://groups.google.com/group/mailing.freebsd.questions/msg/a6aafc66482070c1 http://groups.google.com/group/comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc/msg/83fdd8740321db86 http://groups.google.com/group/lucky.freebsd.questions/msg/7cf951f12567f2fe http://groups.google.com/group/comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc/msg/562dc23fca32c37c http://groups.google.com/group/list.freebsd.questions/msg/8dff805cd2bc76be Then in the post at http://groups.google.com/group/list.freebsd.questions/msg/c9fc1a5a75d9120a you can find a bit of help about `mailertable', the Sendmail feature I use to forward all my email to my default SMART_HOST and redirect company-internal email to the internal mail server of my workplace. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
