    Sendmail Problem


    I configured my sendmail in the RedHat linux Enterpriseserver. I want to use my linux server sendmail to forward the mails to the users of exchange. I am going to put a .forward file. I am running exchange mail server. I entered my domain name in the hosts file. I cannot able to send mail to my mail server as mail -s command. If I send mail to another linux user (who is also a user of the same linux ) using the same command, the mail is not going thorugh and it is not in the queue also. Second thing, I need to set a .forward file to all users for forwarding the mail to their exchange mailbox.

    My internal mails itself not working. What are all the configurations I need
    to check.

    Post the output of:

    Code:
    tail -n 20 /var/log/mail.err
    That may not be the right filename...but it's something close to that if you're using syslogd.
