. Linksys told me that this is OK, but I really think there must be a way to work around this. Our mail accounts are hosted outside our intranet with a web hosting company, which is also holding our DNS record.
Is it possible that all the problems with sendmail are actually DNS problems and how can I test this?
Appreciate you help !
You can test if this are DNS or routing problems:
Please try to connect to the yahoo mailserver via telnet on the shell of your server. Enter the command:
telnet mx4.mail.yahoo.com 25
When you got an answer from the serve, you can close the connection by typing "quit".
The testsession should look similar like this:
# telnet mx4.mail.yahoo.com 25
Connected to mta-v4.mail.vip.mud.yahoo.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mta230.mail.mud.yahoo.com ESMTP YSmtp service ready
Connection closed by foreign host.
If not, please post the output in the forum.
