Operating Systems Solaris Unable to send email to the outside world Post 302343206 by Smiling Dragon on Wednesday 12th of August 2009 02:27:17 AM

Just add the FQDN of Jaya in your hosts file to get rid of that error message.
I suspect that isn't the issue but let's start with the simple stuff first Smilie
Modify /etc/hosts, adding the entry 'jaya.<your.domain.name>' to the end of the line for jaya's address.

The sendmail error should then go away. If mail is still not working to outside-world addresses, get the error message from /var/adm/messages (just grep for 'sendmail') and post it back.

I'd recommend against using a capital letter at the start of that hostname too - most of the addressing is case insensitive but every now and then you get a tool that isn't and it causes problems.

local.users(4)						     Kernel Interfaces Manual						    local.users(4)

local.users - Specifies mail recipients on the local host. DESCRIPTION
The local.users file contains a list of user names whose mail is to be delivered to the local host and whose return address is user- name@hostname. Entries in the local.hosts file are in addition to other local users (such as root and postmaster). See sendmail.cf(4) for a description of other local users. You can add entries to this file if the host is configured as a simple client and either of the following is true: The user wants their mail delivered on this machine rather than being forwarded to the mail server. You are adding aliases to the /var/adm/sendmail/aliases file. When the host is configured as a simple client, the alias must be added to this file and the aliases file. A simple client is defined as a host that had the mail system configured using the MailConfig application from the System Management utili- ties or configured using the mailsetup utility's Quick Setup menu. The format of the file is as follows: User names are separated by blanks or new lines. Multiple user name can be specified on a line. Blank lines are ignored. A comment mark (#) ends the line. After modifying the local.users file, you must restart the sendmail daemon to apply the changes. Use the following command: # /sbin/init.d/sendmail restart EXAMPLES
root postmaster rw # A comment followed by an ignored blank line. # Another comment. mariah # Another comment. carey # Leading blanks are acceptable. FILES
Specifies the path name for the file. RELATED INFORMATION
Files: sendmail.cf(4). delim off local.users(4)
