how to config sendmail.mc to receive email in debian squeeze
 
Hi Staff,
is three day that I try to configure sendmail.mc with my debian squeeze to receive email from external, I can only send mail but I don't receive mail from local too.
note that the sent email to debian don't return to the original sent server.

I just try work around the famous DAEMON_OPTIONS:
Code:

FEATURE(`no_default_msa')dnl
dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Family=inet6, Name=MTA-v6, Port=smtp, Addr=::1')dnl
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Family=inet,  Name=MTA-v4, Port=smtp, Addr=127.0.0.1')dnl
dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Family=inet6, Name=MSP-v6, Port=submission, M=Ea, Addr=::1')dnl
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Family=inet,  Name=MSP-v4, Port=submission, M=Ea, Addr=127.0.0.1')dnl

commenting and de- commenting dnl etc.
what I can only cause don't send like don't receive.
Let me know what I have to do,
what log I have to post
what form have to see
--
I'm waiting for You.
thx

Sendmail is very difficult to configure. Have you thought about using Postfix instead?

postfix exim4 and sendmail make me carzy in debian
 
Hi Falko,
I'm totally with You regarding sendmail on debian squizee
but I go crazy with exim4 and postfix to...
any time I don't have received an email sent to this machine and in the logs I see that all was rejected, now (is to verify) I'm just worried about some wrong parameter that would be like the hostname so I have a suspect: that in my rescue hetzner installimage tool when is asked what kind of hostname give to the server the tool do not edit in all the places that have to edit (is a suspect) now I have totally changed distro I choose a centos minimal 6 64bit and everythink appears MORE simple... but is early, in few hours I will install a mail transport and I will return here.
if You can tell me if there is a procedure to verify that all the places that have to be named like the hostname I will check asap before reset the first centos test set up
thx 4 now

Does the hostname you use exist in DNS? If not, either create an A record or use the hostname Hetzner gives to your server.

the hostname I use was in my DNS
 
Hi Falko,
sorry for the late reply
the hostname I use was in my DNS...

after 3 days of slap and big face, crying I try centos 6.0 and...
I've understand that for me the life is easy with this distro!
I make all the machine from 0 in one night.
so respecting debian is not really my favourite.
Thx
GioMBG
