Sendmail config?

hi,

Here's the situation.

Our client has a box running a web server, and another behind it which runs the Vignette system, both on Solaris.

The box running Vignette is behind a firewall and uses an internal IP address.

This server sends out mailing lists regularly, but there's a problem all of a sudden.

Its host.domain is something like apps.abcdef.com. When Vignette uses the www server's sendmail as the gateway, the mails get sent out as someone@apps.abcdef.com instead of someone@abcdef.com.

Another site which resides on the same box, efgh.com, sends out mails using the same gateway but does not face the same problem.

Anyone has an inkling of why this might be happening?

Thanks!

Which sendmail are you using, Sun's? and if so which version? You can find out what version it is on the relevant boxes by a "telnet server-name 25". The SMTP greeting will include the sendmail version.

Set the masquerading option in /etc/sendmail.cf:

DMabcdef.com

To make all mail from the system appear to come from user@abcdef.com.
