I set my sendmail.mc file to have a SMART_HOST entry of mail.xyz.com I do “make” and “service sendmail restart” … I should be good, but no. :)
If I do “host mail.xyz.com” I get the correct address and if I “telnet mail.xyz.com 25” I get a connection.
however when I do a test mail – its trying to RELAY to another host.
I thought SMART_HOST was the only one it would try to relay to?
yes there is only one SMART_HOST in my file, and sendmail.cf shows the correct name.
How do I tell what is happening here?
the maillog only shows it trying to relay to the wrong host, not the one I
