I can successfully send email from my solaris 10 system to internal email addresses. no problems. However I want to change the ip that the mail server is relaying off of, from to but I can't find where this is setup?

My /etc/mail/ file doesn't have any reference to the current IP address.
# "Smart" relay host (may be null)

Any help would be appreciated.

    Accepted Solution

    Check /etc/hosts to see if you have a record with mailhost entry.
    Look at the mail log /var/log/maillog to see whether it is using a smart host i.e. all external are routed out.

    NOt enough info on what the setup is and how to alter depends on the current configuration.
    is to the IP that you referenced?
