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

Ok here we go

in your sendmail.mc

look for this

define(`SMART_HOST',`sbs.yourdomain.local')dnl


MASQUERADE_AS(`mydomain.com')dnl MASQUERADE_AS(`yourdomain.com')dnl

then compile sendmail , it will work

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

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
