    configuring sendmail


    i need help on configuring sendmail, last time i did it i used a script/program to do it for me, it just asked me name, smtp server and a few other things and it did the rest, so does anyone know the name of the program/script i'm talking about, link maybe, i can't find it

    and if you can't find it either, could you maybe help me do it manually, the .mc looks hard to work with and all i need is for sendmail to take the mail from php and send it to my .mac smtp server, no incoming mail or any other type of mail

    In /etc/sendmail.cf, find the lines that say:
    Code:
    # "Smart" relay host (may be null)
    DS
    and change it to:
    Code:
    # "Smart" relay host (may be null)
    DSmail.yourisp.net
    where mail.yourisp.net is the name of your .mac SMTP server. Then restart sendmail:
    Code:
    kill -HUP `pidof sendmail`
    for the changes to take effect.
