Configuring second mail relay

Hi all,

Once I already asked about this problem, but didn't get solution, so I am opening new thread.
Hope to get help from you guys.

So, my problem is:
I have Solaris 10 based server.
I have a script which should send mails using mailx (can use another if needed).

What I need is - mails which belongs to send to IP1 and mails which belongs to send to IP2 (I need to use different relays).

At the moment, script checking domain name to which mail belongs and changing file /etc/mail/ Smart Relay host each time each time, but this is workaround solution which is not good actually.

I tried to specify domains in /etc/mail/relay-domain in below format:

#more /etc/mail/relay-domain

but no success.

Can you guy help me please? Smilie

That's covered by sendmail's mailertable feature, read here: cf/README - Using Mailertables

Thanks for the answer.
I've tried it before, but not sure that correctly defined parameters.

Here is what I have:

-bash-3.00# cat /etc/mail/mailertable

Here my hosts file:

-bash-3.00# cat /etc/hosts
# Internet host table
::1 localhost localhost analizator loghost Analizator2 mailhost

Is it correct syntax?
Do I need to add FEATURE (`mailertable') in

You can put
FEATURE (`mailertable')

in /etc/mail/cf/cf/ , then run make and copy the resulting to /etc/mail. Or you just put
Kmailertable hash -o /etc/mail/mailertable.db

directly into

The mailertable file should look like this


Dont forget to execute
makemap hash mailertable </etc/mail/mailertable

after changes to the mailertable file.
