Friends,
I have Red Hat 5.0 as my e-mail server over a leased line.
The IMAP RPM I have installed. POP3 server works fone when
I try and read the mails but whenever I try and send mail
there is a error flashing "we donot relay. ckeck the reci-
pients address" Now the e-mail works fine when I telnet and
use pine or mutt or mail. Can anyone tell me the problem
with the POP3 server? What is the configuration required?

You need to edit /etc/mail/relay_allow and add your ISP's Domain. It could be in the form of isp.net or host.isp.net. Add only one on each line.

Then for redundancy, add your IP addresses to /etc/mail/ip_allow, it could be 207, 207.70, 207.70.156, or the full ip address. Add only one on each line.

Then restart sendmail. /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail stop. /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail start. It could be sendmail.init.

relaying is only allowed from 127.0.0.1 loopback, thats why you can use pine on the server.

Enjoy
