you need to install sendmail, RH9 is comming with sendmail or you can download from www.sendmail.org

if you need the RPM you can download from www.rpmfind.net

Redhat 9.0 will already have installed sendmail by default. www.webmin.org will give you a tool which allows you to configure sendmail.

you can use the name of your computer instead a domain name.


in the sendmail directory you need to add.,

in local-host-names    ........>  yourcomputername

access .... >  your network example    192.168.1.0  RELAY

relay-domains   ......> you accept relays   yourcomputername

only this.
