learning Sendmail & sendmail.cf
Posted on 2002-03-27
i want to know more about Sendmail,but on sendmail.org,i could not find a suitable guideline for me as detail.my question is:
1) could you explain what files would be called as sendmail start working,(for example:sendmail would first check sendmail.cw or sendmail.cf when a mail incoming) sth
2) while i know sendmail.cf is the most important, as i know,it would run "check_relay, check_mail,check_rcpt" in sequence,but i don't know the details,could you tell me more or where could i find a good guide to study ? i am very interesting in editing the "sendmail.cf" file,but quite puzzled with "R<$+>,$|, $+,$*..." sth like that.
3) if introduce sendmail.mc & its responding configuration
,extra 30~50 points would be awarded.
waiting for answers from experts,thanks.
