    I put the ip of this smtp relay server located in my DMZ into my hosts file. I then made an entry in my /etc/sendmail.cf file which looks like this,

    DSwwwmailrelay.xxxx.xx.xx

    But still no joy. Can you think of anything else?

    TIA.

    Just replace the DS parm with your mail server:

    # "Smart" relay host (may be null)
    DSnotes3.whatever.com

    Hopefully, it will resolve from your hosts file. Good luck! DNS can wreak
    havoc quickly.

    I have a couple AIX 4.3.3.10 Boxes running in our DMZ. I had to rename my
    /etc/resolv.conf file to get Oracle to see its hostname correctly, rather
    than looking at the DMZ's DNS Entry. Now I cannot get emails, these AIX
    Boxes do not want to send me emails without the resolv.conf file. I put in
    our domain name into the /etc/hosts but no joy.

    Any help on configuring the /etc/sendmail.cf file, using the Smart Relay
    Option. Or, any thoughts or ideas. TIA!
