Hello Experts,

I am wanting to configure sendmail that will forward mail to an exchange server.  Does anybody have any howto as to how to go about this?  Also, I want to make sure that the sendmail does not act as a relay.  Any suggestions as to how to go about this is greatly appreciated.

As always, thank you in advance for your time on this matter.

Read this comments :
Use the sendmail.mc file, and add the line

    define(`SMART_HOST', `your.exchange.server')

somewhere above your MAILER() statements, then rebuild the sendmail.cf from
the sendmail.mc file.

Of course you'll lose any other changes you've directly edited in the
sendmail.cf file, so maybe you'll want to edit sendmail.cf directly again
and change:

# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
DSyour.exchange.server

Are you locked into using sendmail or do you still have an option to choose an alternate mail server i.e. postfix, or qmail?

You might fair better with postfix, or qmail if you would like to get the incoming email "scanned for virus/worm/spam"
www.postfix.org www.qmail.org, www.lifewithqmail.org.

Just a small comment, possibly verging on the nitpicking:

The mail server must be a relay to do anything useful at all. It relays for the sender, out into the internet, or to a smart host. The point is to have it NOT being an "open relay", in which case it will relay without any discrimination, for anybody to anywhere. You want it tor relay for local hosts to the smart-host, I assume. If you gor for a "don't relay" option, you may kill the transport function altogether.
