sendmail problem in local lan
« on: January 22, 2005, 03:44:51 AM »
Dear sir

                   I have installed sendmail on redhat linux 9.0
and modified sendmail.mc to do the relay from 192.168.0.1

but it always says that message is queued.

i.e the message will remailn in the queue but is not getting delivered.

******/var/log/mailllog         is enclosed for your reference

***********************

from windows machine 192.168.0.2 i am able to send the mail to machine 192.168.0.1
i.e my sendmail server. but the messages are getting queued but not getting delivered.

********* /etc/mail/access
# Check the /usr/share/doc/sendmail/README.cf file for a description
# of the format of this file. (search for access_db in that file)
# The /usr/share/doc/sendmail/README.cf is part of the sendmail-doc
# package.
#
# by default we allow relaying from localhost...
#localhost.localdomain          RELAY
#localhost                      RELAY
#127.0.0.1                      RELAY
192.168.0.1                     RELAY


******** /etc/mail/sendmail.mc the sendmail relay server ip address entry is as follows.
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=192.168.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl


Please guide me

Please please check, whether ur pop3d/imapd is running.

If really stuck i suggest u to start all over again. That's faster than cracking ur head :)
