I am trying to configure sendmail to forward to exchange. I have Exchange inside the firewall and sendmail outside the firewall. The exchange server is already in the DNS. Please let me know how I should configure sendmail the best way possible while being security conscience. Thanks

Try this ruiz,

I'm not sure how to get "Exchange to sendmail" working, but this might work for "sendmail to Exchange" working:

Edit the /etc/sendmail.cf file (eg: with vi), and if you find a line which contains just the word:
  DRRelayHostName
Change it to:
  DR123.456.789.012   (or whatever you firewall IP address is, or FAILING THAT, try your Exchange server's IP address)

If not, look for:
  DSmailer:relayhostname
and change it to:
  DSSMTP:123.456.789.012

If not, I give up.  But if one of the above was found and replaced:

Then from the UNIX prompt, activate your change with:
  refresh -s sendmail
and hopefully you will be able to Email Exchange and the Internet if you're set up.  Your messages to Exchange will probably have to use external (ie: Internet) style addressing (eg: me@mywork.com).

Can test verbose send like:
echo "Test Body" | mail -v -s "Test Subject" me@my_work.com

I'm not sure about security...sorry.

If that doesn't work, tell us what type of UNIX you're running, and if possible, what version of /etc/sendmail.cf you've got.  I probably won't be able to help though.
