Sorry for late reply,
ok you need to re configure your sendmail.cf file

which is in , /etc/mail/sendmail.cf


as I  said earlier edit these 2 lines

define(`SMART_HOST',`win2k3.testing.local')dnl
MASQUERADE_AS(`mydomain.com')dnl MASQUERADE_AS(`testing.com')dnl


after this :

you need to compile sendmail.mc with this command

make sure you are in /etc/mail
then type : make

then  you need to add username and email address in the /etc/aliases file
like this

usera:        usera, usera@testing.com

then type , newaliases ( it will recreate aliases)

then try to send email, it will work

when you will complete these as i said, then let me know what happended

are you using sendmail ??

then in sendmail.mc

look for this :

# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
DSsbs.exchangeserver.local


# who I masquerade as (null for no masquerading) (see also $=M)
DMexchangeserver.com

then compile your sendmail.cf

then your  server should be abel to send email via exchang server

Sorry the upper one is for sendmail.cf

you can edid sendmail.cf and add those,

or wait, i am sending you configuration for sendmail.mc

if you edit sendmail.cf diretly then you dont need to compile sendmai again

did you do this ??

in sendmail.mc

define(`SMART_HOST',`win2k3.testing.local')dnl
MASQUERADE_AS(`mydomain.com')dnl MASQUERADE_AS(`testking.com')dnl


then : you need to compile sendmail by using

make command

then try to sendemail like this
cat /etc/hosts | mail -s "host file" user1

or cat /etc/hosts | mail -s "host file" user@gmail.com

One more thing :

in /etc/aliases  , you need to add mailing list of user, other wise it will not send email

you need to add user and their address like this

usera:        usera, usera@testing.com


then  this command : newaliases
