Hi,

My mail server is within my LAN and we dont have/use
DNS server. Why sendmail want to resolve domain.com? I
thought using smart host will tranfer all mails to our
mail.domain.com machine. I just use /etc/hosts file to
resolve mail.domain.com to ip.

Do I need to setup DNS server under fbsd4.9 just to
resolve odmain.com if I send to [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Thank you.
