I have Redhat Linux running on a server and 6 win95 nodes connected to it. File, Print etc. network services are working fine.
I have an internet account with my ISp and my email address is "firstname.lastname@example.org" All my email is being received in this address and reply address set in my mail client is alos the same. Currently I am using a win95 pc to do the mail
handling. User name: "email@example.com" password "qqqq"
for logging in.
Now I want the linux server should send and collect mail automatically every hour. All the mail collected should be sent to two users say "aaaaa" and "bbbbb" who have user accounts on the server. Moreover all users should be able to send mail to the outside world over internet with their reply address set as above. Using the Outlook Express mail clinet in their boxes.
The DNS of my ISP is 111.222.333.444 and alternate DNS is
IP setting of my server is 188.8.131.52 and IP to nodes are given dynamically by the DHCP range 192.168.1.10 -192.168.1.250
PPP connection using PPPD has being sucessfully setup along with login options. However even from the Server sendmail cannot send mail to outside world or fetchmail cannot retrieve mail from my ISP. It gives ups showing a message that it cannot resolve the server name in the email address given.
Request for the following solution.
1. Sendmail settings with the above information
2. Fetchmail Setting with the above information
3. DNS setting with the above information
4. Sample configuration files for the above
In the linux server Sendmail, POP3 has been installed with default setting. DHCP and DNS has also been setup by default.
The linux server is known as linux.kscpl.com in the network.
