Would that mean a file called /etc/mail/pukruppa.net.mc in my case? Since I get # hostname pukruppa.net or do I leave away the .net ?
It's shorthand for 'whatever you call the .mc file you generate your sendmail.cf from.' By default on FreeBSD it's named according to what the hostname(1) command outputs, which should be the fully qualified domain name of your machine (ie. pukruppa.net). You can create the initial copies of the files by: # cd /etc/mail # make which will create files pukruppa.net.mc and pukruppa.net.subit.mcand then process those respectively into pukruppa.net.cf and pukruppa.net.submit.cf
Edit pukruppa.net.mc to make any changes you want, then type 'make' to rebuild pukkruppa.net.cf and then 'make install restart' tocopy pukruppa.net.cf to sendmail.cf (amongst other actiosn) and restart sendmail. In general, whenever you do anything to sendmail related config files including stuff like aliases and access and virtusertable, run
just run make to publish it to the running sendmail process -- you only need 'make install restart' when you modify one of the .cf files. Cheers Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 7 Priory Courtyard Flat 3 PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Ramsgate Kent, CT11 9PW
