Do you want *all* mail originating from scripts on this machine to have
a "work.de" address, or just mail originating from nagios?

Does this mail need to be sent over the Internet? If so, you will need a
valid envelope sender domain instead of localhost.localdomain. What type
of Internet connection do you have (dialup, always-on, static/dynamic?).

The configuration is best done in sendmail, which will then work for all
programs, not just "mail".


It's only a host for Monitoring. There runs "Fujitsu ServerView" and "nagios" That means "work.de" is enough for all. The script send only notifications mail to my internal mailserver.

Where can i do this configuration in sendmail??

# yum install sendmail-cf

Edit /etc/mail/sendmail.mc and change:

dnl MASQUERADE_AS(`mydomain.com')dnl



If you want to be able to rewrite "nagios" as "boom", you should also

FEATURE(`genericstable',`hash -T<TMPF> /etc/mail/genericstable')dnl

just below the existing line:

FEATURE(`virtusertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable.db')dnl

Then create a file /etc/mail/genericstable containing the line:

nagios		boom work de

Then run "make -C /etc/mail; service sendmail reload"

I think that should do what you want.



now it works.

sendmail is really tricky. i have found a nice howto to switch to postfix. I guess it's better for me, to have a postfix on this machine.
There i'm understanding what i'm doing :-))

thx and kind regards
