hello,
I have just installed centos 5.5
i want this box to send email using sendmail from this box and not using my mail.domain.com server. I am using sendmail.i386 0:8.13.8-8.el5
with the default config when i try to send mail i get the error:

Feb 15 19:59:48 rtx sendmail[9462]: p1G1xm71009462: to=randy@domain.me, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30037, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]

which is to be expected with the default.
so then i comment DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl

now when i send mail it is trying relay through my mail.mydomain.com

does it look at the domain record or something? i did not put in mail.mydomain.com anywhere.

I do not want it relaying though the mail mail server

thanks for any help

Are you trying to send mail to an address at your domain?  If so, it will try to send it directly to your server based on the MX lookup.  Have you tried sending to a gmail or hotmail address to see what it does?
