Hello,

How do I change the message that are sent from the MAILER-DAEMON address, when someone sends a message to an email address on my server(s) that doesn´t excist?
I run a Redhat Linux 4.2 and a Redhat Linux 5.0 server.

BTW, where is the alias file (the one that alias email addresses to excisting users) on a Linux 1.3.97 system? In Redhat it is located at /etc/aliases...but in Linux 1.3.97???

Thanks in advance.

For the MAILER-DEAMON address look into the sendmail.cf file.
Also, dowload the source code for sendmail form www.sendmail.org. When you un-tar it in the sendmail-x.x.x/cf/cf directory is a file with all the sendmail options to build a new sendmail.cf file. If all else fails follow the doc and build a new sendmail.cf file to suit your needs.

For the aliases have you tried -

find / -name aliases -print

If you have an aliases file that should find it. In all the Linux machines I've setup the aliases file was in /etc.
If you run newaliases does it complain there is no alias files?

See  OA  option in sendmail.cf wher to find the alias file.
See  OE  option for filename with error message (default: /etc/sendmail.oE)
