1) You will need to set up sendmail as "submit-only" on your box. Look at /etc/mail/freebsd.submit.mc and "man rc.sendmail" 2) You need to set up sendmail to use another mail server instead of localhost. This is set using the "SMART_HOST" option in freebsd.submit.mc; check http://www.sendmail.org for documentation on how to set this. -- Matt Emmerton Take a look at "SMART_HOST" in /etc/mail/freebsd.mc _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
