Re: Logwatch report on another machine?



OP seems to have two problems:

1) sendmail is not configured correctly, email sent by cron jobs is
not delivered.
2) He would like to send mail to an address which is broken, either
the domain doers not exist or DNS not working right? Could it be that
his machine has the hostname set as 'alfred' and is on the
gayleard.com network, so thinks of itself as alfred.gayleard.com, but
his ISP (gayleard?) has not set things up so that DNS can resolve that
name?

Anyhow, logwatch may or may not be configured correctly, but the
reports will never show up until sendmail gets configured properly.
His ISP should be able to help? Mine would probably tell me to go buy
a windoze PC.

It might be simpler to have logwatch send the reports to an external
account, like gmail or yahoo, but that still requires sendmail to work
for sending email.

Maybe this will get sendmail working.
