Can sendmail use a pop3 account to send outgoing mail?
I have a local server (redhat 9 running Sendmail version 8.12.8) setup on a dynamic IP (cable modem) that needs to send mail via my virtual host pop3 mail account aka mail.mydomain,com . Reason is I am getting my mail bounced due to the dynamic ip with the current direct send method.
(reason: 553 5.3.0 Mail from 68.82.*.* rejected, see http://www.mail-abuse.org/dul)
It is important that all of the mail from the server is masq. as the pop3 account id. The server is currently sending mail out with a different domain. The goal is to get my server to send mail as if it were a mail client like mail or outlook.
Will sendmail do this for me or do I need to pipe the mail to some other app? I am not an experinced sendmail admin... so please be kind in your replies.
I found it simple to switch
I installed postfix from rpm. There is a tool in RedHat 9 called mail tranport agaent switcher. It is under system tools > More system tools.
Is it a big deal to change from sendmail to postfix?
I had to set the relay host in the /etc/postfix/main.cf and I had to
create a sender_cononical file.
Read the FAQ I mentioned in the previous post.
I send 5 to 10 messages a day.
I have never needed to do anything like that, so I would not know.
