Thanks Chuck, and the others with the same suggestion. I've set that
parameter in the freebsd.mc file and still have the same problem. I ssh'd
into my current web server box, running RedHat, and sent a message from
the cli mail and watched the messages, and did the same on the FreeBSD box
(which will replace the Linux box soon as mail works). Look at the two
sections below, notice the lines 250 in each section - they are the
reverse of each other. The message sent from the Linux box went through to
its destination, but not the message from the FreeBSD box.
Your examples are showing the handoff between untrusted local mail client using SMTP to localhost:25 to deliver the mail to the local spool, and not the communication from your machine to the next SMTP server.
[ Prior versions of sendmail were setuid-root, and "mail -v" output was more useful; 8.12 is not installed setuid-root anymore... ]
The Linux box had no configuring done to make it send mail out. I have set up previous versions of FreeBSD, all the way back to 3.0, and have never had to do any configuring to get any to send mail out. It has always just worked,
including a previous setup here in this office connected to the same
network. So I'm wondering what has changed in 5.1 to cause this problem,
if anything. Or is it just a bad install?
It's unlikely to be a bad install. Try running:
echo "3,0 [EMAIL PROTECTED]" | sendmail -bt
...on the Linux machine, and see whether the last line relays through your ISP's smarthost, or directly to smtp-mx.mac.com. Compare that to what the FreeBSD machine is doing.
