From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2smp i686)
We were unable to send and receive mail from outside the local host until
we added the following line in the /etc/sendmail.cf file:
which solved the problem.
BTW -- lots of "fun" to get a mail server fully running in RedHat 7.1...
There ought to be some documentation somewhere. Installed the IPOP server,
changed the firewall settings, fixed files in xinetd.d, and then had to
track this problem down.
Steps to Reproduce:
sendmail doc should be expanded for the next release. Please look at
/etc/mail/sendmail.mc to find more commented out configuration things.
