Sendmail question

Hi,

Say I have a host "myhost.mydomain.com" running sendmail.

And I want root@myhost.mydomain.com to receive the messages send to "root@myOTHERdomain.com".

And say that I already created an MX record for "myOTHERdomain.com" is pointing to "myhost.mydomain.com".

What variable/parameter do I need to change in sendmail.cf to have "myOTHERdomain.com" as an alias domain for the local delivery to the mailboxes on "myhost.mydomain.com" ?

In other words: messages sent to root@myOTHERdomain.com should reach the mailbox of root@myhost.mydomain.com

Isn't that a link to a "Postfix" manual ( not "Sendmail" ) ?

Sorry, you are right. I had postfix in my head while i was searching. I'm still looking - there is a way, I just dont know it!

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I found the solution.

Unfortunately none of the above helped me finding it ...

Adding myOTHERdomain.com to the "local-host-names" file did the trick
