    Hi there,

    I have a small network with 10 clients and 3 servers ( assume s1,s2 and s3 )
    All the clients are windows XP and the Servers are RHEL.
    I configured sendmail in one of the server (s3) with RHEL 4.0.
    It is working fine. Now i can able to send mails to my domain.

    So, i created many mail users and we are using that now. All the windows clients can able to send and receive mails from outlook express.

    we have one more office in another country.
    There also mail is working fine.

    The problem is ,
    when we try to send mail from any linux machine ( such as s1,s2 ) it is giving error...

    The error log is as below.........

    Does your router run a mail server?

    No, router ip ix xxx.xxx.xxx.x to acess the mail server from external network
    Mail server ip is 192.168.0.16 locally

    we forwarded mail related ports from xxx.xxx.xxx.x to 192.168.0.16

    from s2 ( jupiter ) - system in local network
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    [nsi@jupiter ~]$ telnet mail.abc.co.in 25

    Is 66.132.181.22 your router's public IP address?

    I guess you somehow configured Sendmail to relay mails through your router which cannot work if your router doesn't use a mail server. Use another mail server instead.
