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 [firstname.lastname@example.org],
Ade Faleti [email@example.com].
Shouben Zhou [zshouben@PCS.CNU.EDU]
Karl E. Vogel [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Kun Li [email@example.com]
I solved by:
1. Adding a root domain server in our LAN ;-)
2. Delete the DR and CR definations in mail servers sendmail.cf to avoid deep loooop.
3. Add DM and CM definations in both mail server and clients.
Thanks a lot.
BTW, I am from china and Lin is my family name.
The origion is:
>I got problem in setting sendmail.cf.
>I am a new system manager and am setting up a SPARC10 using Solaris 2.5.1 as our local >network DNS and Mailhost. The DNS starting file 'named.boot' has set domain to 'ioa.ac.cn.' and the >primary dns server db file to this domain has been setup as the following and the DNS works: (We >do not using NIS)
>@ IN SOA sun103.ioa.ac.cn. sun103.ioa.ac.cn. (

>And I have copied main.cf to sendmail.cf and replaced the DR ddn-gate and CR ddn-gate with DR >sun103 and CR sun103, but sendmail does not work. I tried sending mails from sun103 to >firstname.lastname@example.org, it sent but cannot be received. If I mailed to user@sun103, it works.
