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

Put jkung-2.reshall.ucsd.edu in both the POP3 and SMTP servers and the "username" or "POP3 username" or "POP account" as the username

-if those servers do not work, try ucsd.edu for both SMTP and POP3

POP3 server = Incoming mail server
SMTP server = Outgoing mail server

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).

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...
