    Same Domain Multiple Servers - SENDMAIL


    Dear Members

    I urgently need some help to configure sendmail.

    My situation is the following.

    I have one perimeter email server running Fedora and sendmail.
    This server is receiving all emails for the domain @example.com.

    Behind this server are 2 Microsoft Exchange servers both hosting different email addresses for domain @example.com

    I need to forward emails from the sendmail server to the two exchange servers according to where the email address is hosted.
    address1@example.com must go to exchange server 1 and address2@example.com must go to exchange server 2.

    Can somebody please shed some light and point me in the right direction.

    Regards
    Martin

    I have no idea how this is handled in sendmail. In postfix this is called transport mapping, you explicity say user1@domain.com goes to server1 and user2@domain.com goes to server2.

    This is a very simple task in postfix. I would imagine it would be called something similar in sendmail but google doesn't turn anything up for me.

    Hey,
    Can you connect from the linux machine to the Exchange Server on port 25?
    If yes check and edit your /etc/mail/access it should be as below

    Code:

    # Relay Exchange server

    U.R.I.P RELAY

    Restart your sendmail and then give a try.
    Regards,

    strip; finger; mount; gasp;
    yes; uptime; umount;
    sleep

    Yes all the servers can access ea other.

    Please explain U.R.I.P RELAY.
    Also I need to split mail from the linux firewall to the 2 exchange servers.
    This is for the same domain name.

    Please explain why you say relay access?

    Regards
    Martin

    Hey,
    Here your U.R.I.P RELAY. means you have to insert your exchange servers ip. in /etc/mail/access

    Do update us what is the result.
