sendmail [we do not relay]

I run sendmail ,, it works fine for our lan[200.1.1.0]
but for our wan[200.5.1.0 and 200.4.1.0] the sendmail
log reports "we do not relay"


What do i do to fix , is it DNS/MX record error or is it
just a sendmail.cw file error ,,
my current sendmail.cw = domaim_name.co.za

Run:

# sendmail -d0.1 -bv root

If you are not running Sendmail 8.9.3 then got get it :

http://www.sendmail.org

If you are already then follow this:

The problem is related to the check_ rulesets within your sendmail.cf file. Copy the current file sideways & make it read only! This is your safety net.

Now check through the sendmail.cf file and modify the entries relating to :

F{LocalIP}
F{LocalNames}

Kill & restart sendmail.

This will then allow you to specify who is allowed to relay through your machine. You do NOT want to turn on relaying in general as some people like to abuse this 'feature' of your configuration.

Sorry but you were wrong , i have already solved the problem,

the problem was in the ip-allow file, SPAM control,

OR SO I think.
