Sun managers,

Not long time ago I posted that the sendmail did not work after I installed DNS. Many people sent me suggestions :-), they are:
Bismark Espinoza [],
Ade Faleti [].
Shouben Zhou [zshouben@PCS.CNU.EDU]
Karl E. Vogel []
Kun Li []

I solved by:
1. Adding a root domain server in our LAN ;-)
2. Delete the DR and CR definations in mail servers to avoid deep loooop.
3. Add DM and CM definations in both mail server and clients.

Thanks a lot.
Lin Yu.

BTW, I am from china and Lin is my family name.

The origion is:
