REALLY newbie question - Apologies in advance
Let me preface this post with a statement. This is NOT my question! I have no personal desire to obtain an answer other than to appease my boss.
Here is what I get out of reading this... The person, who is questioning the method that the "DESIGNER" of the application has used in the O/S of which she is totally unfamiliar, would like to know if Sendmail is the correct method to accomplish this task.
"Basically, we have a Red Hat box that is configured to act as a web server, this server will be running our corporate web site once it's finished. The person that was assigned this project is not the most technical in the world, and was assigned to this before my time. On the site that he has created, he would like to create an email link that will send email to a specific address on in our company. His solution to this is to run Send Mail from the web server to forward the information to our email server. Is this the correct method for this? It just seems strange to me, but then again I'm a Windows kind of girl."
