Sendmail and SquirrelMail issues. Please Help!
I know there's a pretty good chance I don't have something configured correctly. I have a few problems dealing with my mail server and I haven't a clue where to really begin.
My first problem involves Sendmail.
I have sereral email addresses and users configured on my server. These accounts can recieve all mail no matter where they are (local network or externally from a remote location). They can send mail only when they are connected to my local network though. Whenever anybody attemptes to send or reply to a message from outside my network, the following error is generated:
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
'firstname.lastname@example.org' on 4/18/2006 9:00 AM
550 5.7.1 <email address here>... Relaying denied
My second issue is with SquirrelMail.
Again, it uses Sendmail and it appears to work fine for retrieveing messages. However, when I attempt to send something, it attaches my domain name to the end of the To: address. Eventually, I get the following message in my Inbox:
** THIS IS A WARNING MESSAGE ONLY **
** YOU DO NOT NEED TO RESEND YOUR MESSAGE **
The original message was received at Sun, 23 Apr 2006 22:35:37 -0400 from localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1]
----- Transcript of session follows ----- <email@example.com>... Deferred: Connection timed out with server.berkeley.edu.ayeka.net.
Warning: message still undelivered after 4 hours Will keep trying until message is 5 days old
I have some messages that get forwarded to my cell phone. These messages used to come up as firstname.lastname@example.org Now, they come up as email@example.com
Fourth, can anybody point me to a good easy setup for Spam Assassin?
The first time I attempted to set this up, I never recieved any messages. I have since disabled this service, but I'm starting to get tired of all the spam I seem to recieving lately.
Any help anybody could give would be very apprieciated! Also, I can post any configurations that are needed.

Cooo - not much wrong here then!
Right, lets take this one at a time, because the Sendmail problem could be causing the other two issues you mention.
Firstly, how have you configured sendmail? You should be using an M4 file a bit like this:
divert(0) include(`../m4/cf.m4') OSTYPE(`linux')dnl define(`confDEF_USER_ID',``8:12'')dnl define(`confDOMAIN_NAME',`<yourdomain>')dnl define(`ALIAS_FILE',`/etc/mail/aliases,/etc/mail/majordomo')dnl define(`confPRIVACY_FLAGS',`authwarnings,needmailhelo,noexpn,novrfy')dnl define(`confTO_QUEUERETURN',`4d')dnl define(`confTO_QUEUEWARN',`4h')dnl define(`PROCMAIL_MAILER_PATH',`/usr/bin/procmail')dnl undefine(`UUCP_RELAY')dnl undefine(`BITNET_RELAY')dnl FEATURE(`redirect')dnl FEATURE(`always_add_domain')dnl FEATURE(`use_cw_file')dnl FEATURE(`local_procmail')dnl FEATURE(`mailertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/mailertable')dnl FEATURE(`virtusertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable')dnl FEATURE(`access_db',`hash -T<TMPF> /etc/mail/access')dnl FEATURE(`blacklist_recipients')dnl FEATURE(dnsbl,`cbl.abuseat.org',` Mail from $&(client_addr) rejected: see http://cbl.abuseat.org')dnl FEATURE(dnsbl,`relays.mail-abuse.org',` Mail from $&(client_addr) rejected; see http://www.mail-abuse.org/rss/')dnl MAILER(smtp)dnl MAILER(procmail)dnl
m4 <yourfile>.m4 > sendmail.cf
Also in your /etc/mail you shlould have a 'relay-domains' file which lists the domains you relay mail for, and a file called 'access' which should contain stuff a bit like this:
localhost.localdomain RELAY localhost RELAY 127.0.0.1 RELAY 192.168.1.0/24 RELAY

Thank you. I was able to actually get this working, I found a problem with my hosts file!
I am still interested in getting spam assassin to work though, I did enable ordb and it works mostly, but I'm still getting a few spam messages.
