    I would highly recommend getting rid of sendmail and replacing it with postfix, if at all possible.

    I thought you had already made another thread about this...

    No that's a different one.In that thread i just wanted to know how to add a virtual domain to sendmail through linuxconf.That wasn't about the mailer settings.

    Sendmail is a beast not for the faint of heart. It's a very powerful enterprise class mailer but also very cryptic system. It has its own support infrastructure as well. My only advise would be, ..... get the official support?? I'm not sure how many you will find who are good at sendmail in open forums. Sorry I can't be of more help since I avoid sendmail like a racoon.

    If you need to use sendmail, try using the m4 RPM for sendmail. It uses the /etc/mail/sendmail.mc file which is much, much more readable. Running "make" in that /etc/mail directory generates a new sendmail.cf file.

    I've been hearing about postfix more and more. Does anyone have a good tutorial they could recommend?

    Ok, i have found a solution of my problem.To change the default mailer to my settings i had to change the mailer definition in /usr/lib/linuxconf/mailconf directory's file virtualmailer.std.cf.

    Linuxconf retrieves the information for the mailer from this file when it generates sendmail.cf and for defining the file from which allowed email domain will be read, in linuxconf :

    Control -> Linuxconf management -> Configuration files

    Select the /etc/mail/sendmail.cV file and change its path to your path.Save and generate new sendmail.cf file.

    It works in the way i wanted, the only difference is that i wanted to define the file containing the email domain like:

    FA/etc/domain/VirtualsDomains

    and in this case i have it like:

    FV/etc/domains/VirtualDomains

    Now, i am searching for it
