When I send mail to people in my company  they receive it.
When I send mail out of my domain (for example: it not get there.

I use this command 'more xxx.txt |mail'.

I have another mail server on NT and I want all mail sent from my sgi to be delivered by this server(becuase this NT server work fine).

So , how can I do this:
     when writing 'more xxx.txt |mail'
     I want that the mail will be processed  by the      NT server.

For a really minimal sendmail config, where all mail is really to be routed through another mailer, the local sendmail needs only to do two things:

1) Deliver locally that which is local (no @ in the address etc)
2) Send to someplace else everything else.

I have used the following (all other settings are the default ones) with no problems....

#Dj$w sets local domain name
#DS is name of 'smart' mailer host
