Hello. In my LAN the DNS server is my ADSL modem ... small device that cannot do MX type of address lookup. I wish to configure a fax server (FreeBSD 5.2 + Hylafax) in the LAN to send emails to a group of people upon receiving fax. The problem is hylafax fax server can only use sendmail to send fax notification, but sendmail can send out emails only when it knows receipiant's MX ip.

The only way I can think of is to let sendmail send mails by using my ISP's smtp server (need login). But I read sendmail(8), I didn't find how to configure sendmail to do this, nor did I find such information on the handbook. I'm not familiar with sendmail config.

I hope I'm clear:) What should I do now? Do you have something to suggest me to read? Thank you.

To create your own sendmail configure file:

1. cd /etc/mail/
2. make && make install
3. vi /etc/mail/<hostname>.mc

This configuration has a example on how to use the SMART_HOST option. I'm
not sure about how to login. Then after you have configured it all do:

1. cd /etc/mail/
2. make && make install && make restart

Yes there is a SMART_HOST option, but where to config the login and sender's address?

My ISP restricts both smtp username/password and sender's email address.
