Hi,

Since you use a smart host, all email is directly send to that host i think
{ not very familiar with sendmail }
So my guess is that you need local aliases on t he smtp.washington.edu
machine..

HTH,

Onderwerp: FreeBSD 5.2 & sendmail - root alias aliases not working


Hi, Im trying to hand off all the cron mail (to root) on my freebsd 5.2
server
to another user or 2 using the aliases file and sendmail.

The problem is that sendmail does not seem to be looking at my aliases file
at all.

Here is my setup:

ali# grep send /etc/rc.conf
sendmail_enable="NO"
sendmail_submit_enable="YES"
sendmail_msp_queue_enable="YES"
ali#

The only thing I changed from the default freebsd.mc file in /etc/mail
was to uncomment/add the line:

dnl Dialup users should uncomment and define this appropriately
define(`SMART_HOST', `smtp.washington.edu')

to hand off email to the campus-wide delivery system

in /etc/aliases I have:

# Pretty much everything else in this file points to "root", so
# you would do well in either reading root's mailbox or forwarding
# root's email from here.

root:   mbw, ncosgray

Which I would assume will fwd mail to root to those 2 users...


But when I run a test:

ali# /usr/sbin/sendmail -v root < /dev/null
LOG: MAIN
   <= [EMAIL PROTECTED] U=root P=local S=310

ali#

It never changes the "root" to "mbw" or "ncosgray"

Can anyone explain this and/or help me to fix it?

thanks,

Matt
