Problem with Sendmail
Posted on 2004-09-09
I Have the following problem:
I have a server with MailScanner 4.31 (with sendmail integrated). We are hosting a domain named EDELCARIBE.COM. The users of this domain live at panamá and they've been having troubles with they're mails. They cannot send mail through my server, the message they get is the following:
The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. Subject 'Fw: Oferta en Firme', Account: 'Julio Artuz Eurolatina', Server: 'mail.edelcaribe.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 5.7.1 <email@example.com>... Relaying denied. IP name possibly forged [184.108.40.206]', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79
I have the domain in /etc/hosts, /et/mail/relay-domains, in access db... i have enabled all sendmail features to relay using access db, etc. Here's my sendmail.mc file:
dnl # This is the sendmail macro config file for m4. If you make changes to
dnl # /etc/mail/sendmail.mc, you will need to regenerate the
dnl # /etc/mail/sendmail.cf file by confirming that the sendmail-cf package is
dnl # installed and then performing a
dnl # make -C /etc/mail

dnl # Uncomment and edit the following line if your outgoing mail needs to
dnl # be sent out through an external mail server:
dnl define(`STATUS_FILE', `/etc/mail/statistics')dnl
dnl # The following allows relaying if the user authenticates, and disallows
dnl # plaintext authentication (PLAIN/LOGIN) on non-TLS links
dnl define(`confAUTH_OPTIONS', `A p')dnl
dnl # PLAIN is the preferred plaintext authentication method and used by
dnl # Mozilla Mail and Evolution, though Outlook Express and other MUAs do
dnl # use LOGIN. Other mechanisms should be used if the connection is not
dnl # guaranteed secure.

dnl define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `EXTERNAL GSSAPI DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
dnl # Rudimentary information on creating certificates for sendmail TLS:
dnl # make -C /usr/share/ssl/certs usage
dnl # This allows sendmail to use a keyfile that is shared with OpenLDAP's
dnl # slapd, which requires the file to be readble by group ldap

dnl # The following causes sendmail to only listen on the IPv4 loopback address
dnl # 127.0.0.1 and not on any other network devices. Remove the loopback
dnl # address restriction to accept email from the internet or intranet.
dnl # The following causes sendmail to additionally listen to port 587 for
dnl # mail from MUAs that authenticate. Roaming users who can't reach their
dnl # preferred sendmail daemon due to port 25 being blocked or redirected find
dnl # this useful.
dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=submission, Name=MSA, M=Ea')dnl
dnl # The following causes sendmail to additionally listen to port 465, but
dnl # starting immediately in TLS mode upon connecting. Port 25 or 587 followed
dnl # by STARTTLS is preferred, but roaming clients using Outlook Express can't
dnl # do STARTTLS on ports other than 25. Mozilla Mail can ONLY use STARTTLS
dnl # and doesn't support the deprecated smtps; Evolution <1.1.1 uses smtps
dnl # when SSL is enabled-- STARTTLS support is available in version 1.1.1.
dnl # For this to work your OpenSSL certificates must be configured.
dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtps, Name=TLSMTA, M=s')dnl
dnl # The following causes sendmail to additionally listen on the IPv6 loopback
dnl # device. Remove the loopback address restriction listen to the network.
dnl # NOTE: binding both IPv4 and IPv6 daemon to the same port requires
dnl # a kernel patch
dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`port=smtp,Addr=::1, Name=MTA-v6, Family=inet6')dnl
dnl # We strongly recommend not accepting unresolvable domains if you want to
dnl # protect yourself from spam. However, the laptop and users on computers
dnl # that do not have 24x7 DNS do need this.
dnl # Also accept email sent to "localhost.localdomain" as local email.
dnl # The following example makes mail from this host and any additional
dnl # specified domains appear to be sent from mydomain.com
dnl # masquerade not just the headers, but the envelope as well
dnl # masquerade not just @mydomainalias.com, but @*.mydomainalias.com as well
i Executed m4 but nothing, the message still appears. The cand receive but they cannot send.
I don't know what else should i do. A month ago, that domain was updated and i have checked my named.conf and my zones and everything seems to be ok. I don't know if a domain trouble because it resolves. The first name server is 220.127.116.11 and the second DNS is 18.104.22.168.
What can it be??. i don't know what to do.
