hi guys ,
i have spended some time to resolve a problem with IC sending email to
admin and customer. i am no profesional, so please i hope i did
explained the steps as clearly as possible
here it goes:
i am using IC 5.3, with red hat linux 3 enterprise
Sendmail with IC fixed.
Configuring sendmail, so it will send emails to admin and customers.
1. Download and install m4-1.4.2.tar.gz
# tar xzf m4-1.4.2.tar.gz
# make check
# make install
to remove the program binaries and object files from the
source directory by typing `# make clean'
ps. you can view INSTALL file within directory.
2. Download sendmail-cf-8.11.6-3-i386.rpm and install.
(note: these two files are used to rebuild sendmail configuration file,
that you will modify.
3.Open /etc/mail/sendmail.mc config file and find a line:
a) erase dnl
b) substitute `smtp' with a domain where the mail will go to
4.In a command type # m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc>/etc/mail/sendmail.cf
This will rebuild your sendmail.cf file.
5.Open /etc/hosts file and add mail server name. Example, when you open
host file you will see someting like this:127.0.0.1
You have to add mail server name after the 127.0.0.1 example:127.0.0.1
smtp.comcast.net nasaut.laptop localhost
6.After that restart senmail:# /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail restart
7.Test your senmail with: # sendmail -vt [press enter]
To: sent at email.to [press enter]
. [press enter]
NOTE:For some reason on my other machine i had to reboot the system ,
after that it worked.
