1. Is sendmail running on the server?
(Note - sendmail does not have to be running - just wondering if it is or not)

2. What errors are you seeing when you attempt to send mail from this server? Post what you find, please.

3. You can run the following command to check Sendmail for set up errors - /usr/lib/sendmail -d0.1 -bt < /dev/null - and post what version of Sendmail you are using.

4. Check your sendmail.cf file for forwarder information - normally this is where you could change the configuration to forward to a main mail exchanger. NOTE: make copies of any files you are going to edit.

Hi.

in the sendmail.cf file check the DS line (smart relay host) and modifiy it
example : DSmailserver.mail.net
then restart sendmail

I dont remember the exact location of sendmail.cf on hp-ux .. use the find command to find it..
