For some time I have been struggling to set up a network with the following configuration: 2x R4.7p4s and 1x W2k boxes on the local LAN and a R4.6 box as the gateway to the world on a ADSL line. A registered domain is pointing to my fixed IP address. All boxes can exchange mail on the LAN, send mail to the wide world and fetch mail using fetchmail. But mail to my registered domain seems to go to device zero. I am left with questions like what is the difference in sendmail configuration between the LAN PCs and the gateway PC? How can I check that my ISP has me set up properly for resolving reverse lookups? My MX records at zoneedit.com? Will my ISPs mail server cooperate? When you write the new Handbook chapter I hope you will keep the home user in mind and cover some of my points. And of course, if you should have any references that I should consult, I would appreciate any pointer!
