To All,

Anybody know where i can find a detailed flowchart or sequential list containing the processes of sendmail from mail submission to delivery.....local and remote?

For local i know it goes along the lines of....MSP ---> Clientmqueue ---> MTA ---> Mailbox.

How about for remote?

The situation is this, i have two test sendmail servers, situated on a simulated WAN, i can telnet into each other and send mail (no problem), but when using the 'mail' command to send, the message gets routed back to the sending machine. The MX records are correct and they have associated A records, however, i read that a reverse lookup record is required, why? But before i go into the details of the setup, i think a flowchart would help me diagnose the issue fairly easily.

Any Ideas?

Thank in advance!!
