I seem to be in a bit of a pickle. I can't seem to get my Fedora Core 4 machine to do smart relay to an smtp server that I have an account on to be able to send mail.
Work has decided to give me a new machine and with that comes web restriction where I don't have access to send mail on port 587. So since I still can connect to my home network, I want to be able to forward mail to my home machine and have it relay mail on that port to the external smtp server.
I have been googling around and see that I need to configure my sendmail.mc file with the following entries:
define(`RELAY_MAILER_ARGS', `IPC $h 697')dnl
then run the script that will update my sendmail.cf file.
I don't have a default sendmail.cf file and I can't seem to find where the .cf examples are on my machine.
Issue 2 (Which is probably caused by issue one)
When I run the m4 command I get the following:
[user FC4FW share]$ m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
/etc/mail/sendmail.mc:10: m4: Cannot open /usr/share/sendmail-cf/m4/cf.m4: No such file or directory
I also tried looking at the submit.cf file which has a smart host entry that I can put in it
# "Smart" relay host (may be null)
But I don't see where I can specify a specific port number to send mail on since the external server requires that I send mail on port 587.
How can I generate the sendmail.cf file so that I can have the settings I want or is it ok to just edit the submit.cf file?
If it is ok to just edit the submit.cf file, how can make sure that I can send mail on a specifc port to an external server that requires authentication.
