    sendmail configuration on RHEL4


    Hello,

    I am writing a shell script to send emails to my company mail id when disk usage on the server exceeds a threshold.

    I tried to send email using sendmail on RHEL5. The mail delivery was successful and I received the email in my mailbox. (I didn't configure anything in sendmail. I tried with default sendmail configuration.)

    The problem is, when I try to send mail using sendmail on RHEL4, I get the following error in /var/log/maillog

    "

    dsn=5.1.1, stat=User unknown
    Jan 5 01:49:57 RHEL4 sendmail[28513]: p04KJr2B028511: p04KJv2B028513: DSN: User unknown

    "



    I am not sure, is there any configuration need to be done in RHEL4 for sendmail to work?

    Thanks in advance

    Regards

    Hi,

    I believe that by default sendmail only listens on localhost

    netstat -plant | grep :25

    will show you that post it up here so i can see
