Without that setting, sendmail will try to send mail _directly_ to its final destination by looking up the MX record. If your workstation (I believe the original thread centered around configuring a workstation to send mail, right?) does not have all the magic stuff in place to get past spam filters, you will get bounced. i.e. if your DNS isn't set up perfectly, or if your IP address is on the list of DHCP addresses, etc. By setting up smart_host, sendmail will send _all_ email to smart_host, which (if your ISP is worth the money you pay for) will have proper DNS and will not be blacklisted or anything, and will reliably forward your mail on for you. -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
