Haveing played about with this problem over the weekend I've settled
on creating  "/etc/mail/relay-domains" and just putting the domains that can
relay through us in there ( not the best approach as all my home users have to
have their ISPs listed.)  I would have liked to use the access_db approach but I
can't seem to get sendmail to read it( I've put it in /etc/mail/access) so if
anyone has this method working a few(lots) of pointers would be nice.
