Slackware :: Sendmail With Free DynDns - ~/.forward

I should say that I'm not an expert of linux or sendmail. On my way to learning I'm trying to setup my sendmail server at home using free dydns account( I can send and receive emails to/from @hotmail, @yahoo, @gmail (the ones I've checked).


Following is access file (access.db created using makemap hash)


Now I'm trying to forward emails coming to my local inbox( to my hotmail account. For this to work, server1 should be able to RELAY messages originated from, so I added entry to access file. Also I've made ~/.forward file:

But the problem is I receive an error message in /var/log/maillog & also a message is sent to root@server1:


Part of message sent to root@server1 is:

Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up DynDns + Free DNS Service For Hosting Locally
I have an Ubuntu Server, a dyndns account and an account with [URL]. My DynDns stuff is all working just great - is the address. Now I need a domain which I have already bought, to be linked to that machine at [URL] I signed up with and now I am a bit confused at what records to add where. I added a domain - [URL] then setup a webforward as follows: redirect from [URL] and redirect from[URL] to [URL] , however if you go and visit:[URL] you will see my problem! It takes you back to [URL] server and says there is not a webforward setup for [URL]This tells us that the nameservers are all setup fine - and its something in my freedns config which is failing.

Server :: Sendmail Forward Copy To Another Mailbox?
We're using sendmail with ldap routing. We've setup a new mailstore which some of our users are piloting.

We've been asked to configure sendmail to forward a copy of pilot users emails to the new mailstore (Zimbra) as well as the old (Sun Messaging).

I'm not exactly sure how to do this. I've tried modifying aliases to forward to 2 destinations, but ldap routing seems to take precedence before aliases.

Slackware :: Fetchmail - Sendmail - Aliases ?
Fetchmail +sendmail played nice together, until I installed hylafax, and added an alias it requires. I just ran the usual makemap command on aliases to make aliases.db, and that's there the trouble began. Fetchmail appeared to hang, at any email account that had email in it, at the RCPT stage. I finally read the warning at the top of /etc/mail/aliases that says to run newaliases.

Slackware :: Options Dropped In Sendmail 8.14.4?
I recently tried to upgrade my Slackware server's sendmail software from 8.14.3 to 8.14.4 and ran into a problem. In a nutshell all outbound non local mail is routed through a smart host requiring authentication. As a result I use a modified version of the "" to build the However, when I tried to run sendmail 8.14.4 with my newly created I was greeted with the following.

Warning: Option: AuthMechanisms requires SASL support (-DSASL)
Warning: Option: AuthOptions requires SASL support (-DSASL)
Warning: Option: CACertPath requires TLS support
Warning: Option: CACertFile requires TLS support


Apparently SSLv2 is now considered weak and the directive is a good idea, but at present this directive is not supported by the sendmail in this package.

Slackware :: Sendmail And DNS - Mail Server Behind Router
So I'm having troubles setting up a mail server. First of all, anyone want to try to telnet into <snip> on port 25 and see if it's blocked? I don't think it is, but you never know. How long does it usually take for MX records to get around? I've had this set up for about a day now and still don't see any MX records on any lookup site I go to. I'm currently using slackware 12.2's default sendmail configuration. Should I change anything? I started sendmail on my laptop and got emails going within the LAN but I cannot send emails over WAN (i.e. to/from yahoo or google accounts).e?

I'm configuring sendmail that runs on Linux Slackware but find some difficulties to do some quick startup due to its complexity and massive documentation. Suppose I want to configure a sendmail that can serve 2 domains:

By having 2 domains, I want to able to send email between and;therefore, my machine acts as both a server and a client. How can I setup sendmail so that it acts as both server and client? How to register email address and its domain on sendmail?

Slackware :: 13.1 Sendmail-procmail MAILDIR For Dovecot Server?
Built an MTA/LDA Slackware Server and seperate MDA (Dovecot 2.2) Slackware Server. Used the slackwiki Sendmail TLS SMTP-AUTH guide for the MTA/LDA Server.
The ../cf/cf/ config file has Procmail sorting as:
FEATURE(`local_procmail',`',`procmail -t -Y -a $h -d $u')dnl

I don't understand the arguments ($), but know the -Y forces mbox. The /var/mail directory is hardlinked to where ever the spool directory is. I want the Dovecot MDA server to use NFS or UNFS to grab user's mail from the MTA/LDA Server. Problem is the hardlink. Can't nfs share a hardlinked directory.

Is there a way to change the MTA sendmail mc config file above to have LDA promail send to /home/mail, so I can nfs that directory? And preferably in MAILDIR format? BTW: I can't find any procmailrc config file on this Slackware Server. I should have all the settings in my /etc/mail/ config.

Server :: Sendmail M4 Configuration Base Directory /usr/share/sendmail-cf Was Not Found
I am using webmin for my daily tasks. I have fedora 13, whenever I click on ''Sendmail M4 Configuration'' or Outgoing Addresses (generics)'' I get the following error message


The Sendmail M4 configuration base directory /usr/share/sendmail-cf was not found on your system, or is not the correct directory. Maybe it has not been installed (common for packaged installs of Sendmail), or the module config is incorrect. I read documentation at, it seems that structure of directories for send mail has been changed in version sendmail-8.1.4 shipped with FC13. In webmin config module we have


Sendmail M4 base directory = /usr/share/sendmail-cf

which is not there. I did a locate / sendmail-cf on the command line, it finds nothing

Networking :: Sendmail Config + Sendmail Not Reflecting Changes To Access Db?
I am trying to set up a simple sendmail smtp relay server but I am having some problems. It is a apt-get Debian package install. First, no matter what I do to the access or access.db files sendmail still starts seemingly with no changes. If I delete or rename access.db it still starts. If I type gibberish into the access file and try to remake access.db with 'make access.db' it still creates a new file with no warnings! Second, I do not know exactly what to put into the access file to make it do what I want it to do, even if sendmail did pay attention to my changes. What I want it to do is to not accept any incoming mail at all, and relay mail from three different domains, and preferably only from a single email address in each of them. It also must not pay any attention to the IP of the computer it is relaying from.

Server :: Sendmail Not Reading Default ?
I recently modified to use a third party SMTP server to send emails. It works great. But when I run sendmail from the command line, I have to specify the -C flag and force feed it the location of my, or else it doesn't work.

So in other words, the following works great:

However, if I don't specify the -C flag, sendmail doesn't consider what's in the and barfs:

I don't run sendmail as a daemon. I'm only using it to send emails. I know my modifications of are correct because it works perfectly when I use the -C flag. I searched my disk to see if I could find another on the machine and only the one in /etc/mail came up.

Why sendmail is not reading my

I'm running Sendmail version 8.14.2 on Fedora Core 8.

Server :: Use System Monitor Via A VNC Connection The Free Disk Space Value Is 20GB Free On The Same Volume
I've got a question on free disk space. I'm currently running CentOS 5.5 on in Xenserver virtual environment. We've had an issue with disk space. My question is as follows: - from a ssh connection i run df -h this gives the value of 90% used leaving me with 9GB. If I use system monitor via a VNC connection the free disk space value is 20GB free on the same volume. Which one is correct? I do use SNMP to monitor the same volume and should alert me when < 10% is free I know this works as I set the alert threshold to < 90% I get an alert.
