Hi, I have my computer setup to be called 'grommit', and my domain as ucsd.edu, so Linux automatically calls my computer grommit.ucsd.edu.  Unfortunately, my actual address is jkung-2.reshall.ucsd.edu, so I'm trying to figure out how to configure sendmail to send all remote mail with the From address of user@jkung-2.reshall.ucsd.edu

help!  =)

thanks,
steve

I have a similar setup--you want to put

Djjkung-2.reshall.ucsd.edu

in your /etc/sendmail.cf file. The Dj command forces sendmail
to use a different domain name from the one it infers (based
on how you've set your machine's hostname).

How did it go?

I'm not quite sure what you mean exactly... where do I change the POP3/SMTP servers?  

I tried changing the Dj in my sendmail.cf, but Linux keeps sending mail with the From header saying "user@grommit.ucsd.edu", so I think I need to modify the way Linux is creating the from header - but I'm not sure how...
