Sendmail masquerading on Solaris 10

Hi,
I need to setup the return address of the box on a Solaris 10 system to be user@domainname.com.
On Linux, I configured a null client setup using /etc/mail/submit.mc.

I guess the same does work on solaris. I tried an alternative approach by adding the following line to /etc/mail/sendmail.cf.


#####################################
###   SMTP Mailer specification   ###
#####################################

R$+                     $@ $1 < @ $m >          add @domainname.com
## R$+                  $@ $1 < @ *LOCAL* >             add local qualification


But now I get this error

/etc/mail/sendmail.cf: line 1335: invalid rewrite line "R+                     @ 1 < @ m >          add @domainname.com" (tab expected)

Note that EE has a sendmail-specific TA --> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Email_Groupware/Sendmail/

Your first mistake is hacking sendmail.cf directly. You mention "submit.mc" on Linux, so evidently you know about the .mc macro configuration method. Why would you hack sendmail.cf directly? Use the appropriate FEATURE macros in sendmail.mc.

sendmail.cf is riddled with finicky whitespaces; sometimes a tab, sometimes a bunch of spaces. The error you get suggests you didn't use a tab where you were supposed to. Since no human should have to figure this out, you should do like psicop says and config sendmail using the sendmail.mc file, not the cf file.
