Mail server assiging

Hi Guys,
i want to know that how we could assign the mail server for our own machine?
suppose we have one linux machine that's our mail server so i want to configure for our own machine to refer it for any sending/receiving mails?
i think that we should insert mail server specifications in "sendmail.cf " , but i don't know the exact format of it.
and also should we do any tasks besides that?

Rgrds,
Nikk

You can configure your server to use the linux mail server to send email, but for the linux mail server to know to push received email to your system requires changes on it (normally in the aliases file -

certainuser: certainuser@ourserver.ourdomain.com

As far as sending mail from your server to the linux server, you can put it's name@domain.com into sendmail.cf. Look for the following lines (your lines may be a little different)


# who I send unqualified names to (null means deliver locally)
DRexchange.ourdomain.com

# who gets all local email traffic ($R has precedence for unqualified names)
DH

# class E: names that should be exposed as from this host, even if we masquerade
# class L: names that should be delivered locally, even if we have a relay
# class M: domains that should be converted to $M
# class N: domains that should not be converted to $M
CL unixtst
C{E}root
CMprivate.ourdomain.com

# who I masquerade as (null for no masquerading) (see also $=M)
DMourdomain.com


See the Sendmail masquerade info and Sendmail FAQ for more answers.
