    What exactly is the problem here? sendmail will send your mail, reguardless of where it's being sent to. Are you trying to retreive your mail from hotmail and check it via kmail or evolution or some such program? If so, check this out: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/vie...740&highlight=

    sendmail should be logging some error, at least. I don't know what sendmail's log file is called in slackware, though, but if you have /var/log/maillog, see what you can find out from it.

    Problems:

    If I do not have 777 permissions at /var/spool/clientmqueue/, I get an error, witch says that I do not have write permissions.

    It allways tell me that the IP of my machine is 192.168.0.1 - witch is a privat IP (not the server IP) .

    I don't know for sure, but it does seem to be something with hotmail. Look at this line:

    The hotmail server says that it accepted the message. Thus, your server has done nothing wrong. It has correctly delivered the message to hotmail, and hotmail says that it has accepted it. Therefore, no matter how I look at it, it does indeed seem as if hotmail is doing something wrong. Maybe hotmail filters it away as Spam?

    My suggestion dont use microsoft, ie Hotmail.

    If however you feel the need to use microsoft then by almeans do that but know this you can integrate all your email into one by using Eudora.

    Oh, I do not use Hotmail.
    But, I have some programs, that require an authentification response from new user address. I that address is any@hotmail.com or any@msn.com, the user can't log in.

    Any sugestion?

    Thank's

    Well, the thing is that it does not seem that you can do anything about it, since your system seems to be working fine. Try contacting the hotmail admins and query them about it:
    msnhst@microsoft.com
