Hello Experts,

I have Sendmail as mail server on a Redhat9.0 Linux.
Version 8.12.8
System identity:
(short domain name) $w      = abc
(canonical domain name)$j  = abc.mysubdomain.org
(subdomain name)$m          = mysubdomain.org
(node name)$k                    = abc.mysubdomain.org

Can anyone show me how to set up my Sendmail as an SMTP server? I need that in order to use my Sendmail as SMTP server on an Outlook Express email account (which uses another domain) . That Outlook Express uses POP3.

Thank you very much!

Sendmail IS an SMTP server. That's what it is designed, from the ground up, to do. No special setup is needed.

Sendmail is NOT a POP server. Sendmail is designed to move E-Mail from System A to System B rapidly and efficiently. But putting it in the mailbox of User Z and then mediating access of some client software to that mailbox is NOT part of what sendmail was designed to do. See http://www.faqs.org/docs/securing/imapop.html

What you need is a POP3 server software. There is such a software in the PINE E-Mail package from University of Washington. See also http://howtos.linux.com/guides/solrhe/Securing-Optimizing-Linux-RH-Edition-v1.3/imapop.shtml.
