this is my first time setting up a sendmail server.
i have enabled the following for sendmail configuration:
the server hostname is thehulk, the fqdn is thehulk.my-site.com
i have two users setup me-one and tester. after i enabled the above masquerade feature, outgoing mail has their headers correctly modified to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
but when i send an email to email@example.com from firstname.lastname@example.org the mail does not get delivered instead it gets qued as such:
Apr 1 13:17:20 localhost sendmail: j31IHJt8003385: to=<email@example.com>, delay=00:00:00, mailer=local, pri=31145, dsn=4.4.3, stat=queued
BUT when i send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org the mail gets delievered and it immediatelyt shows up in my outlook express when i check it.
i have the correct domain name entered in the local-host-names files.
can any help me figure out what is going wrong here? why is sendmail queuing this email instead of simply deliviring it to the local mailbox....for some reason sendmail sees 'my-site.com' as a foreign mail server on the net etc......
if exact configuration from the files are needed, i can post them here for clarification.
thanks for any help.
