Hello again

 

Using FreeBSD 5.3 I've got sendmail-8.13.5 up and running as a daemon and am
able to use the shell prompt to send email to myself on the local machine as
root using commands like:

/usr/sbin/sendmail -v root <sendstuff

where sendstuff is a text file with a test message.

 

It works also if I send to root at euclid.edcv where 'euclid' is the name of
the box on the network and 'edcv' is the local domain name for my LAN.

 

If I try to send the same message to the outside world, say to
charles-brewster at ntlworld.com , it looks as if sendmail is sending out, but
nothing is arriving. The '-v' output is as follows:

It looks to me as if sendmail is passing on the message to the local machine
but that it is not getting any further.

 

I've got this far by editing /etc/mail/sendmail.cf directly by hand, since I
can't get 'Build -c' to work.

 

I've tried with and without a value after the DS in these sendmail.cf lines

# "Smart" relay host (may be null)

DSsmtp.adsl4less.com

 

I've got the sendmail source files unpacked in
/root/install_software/sendmail/sendmail-8.13.5 and I'm running Build from
that directory logged in as root.

 

When I try to create sendmail.cf using a .mc file copied to
/devtools/Site/site.config.m4 (just the standard FreeBSD offering from the
distro with a couple of edits to properly generate the changes hacked into
sendmail.cf) it throws up errors on the console beginning as follows:

"Makefile", line 2: Error in archive specification: "VERSIONID"

 

Line 2 in
/root/install_software/sendmail/sendmail-8.13.5/obj.FreeBSD.5.3-RELEASE.i386
/libsm/Makefile is:

VERSIONID(`$FreeBSD: src/etc/sendmail/freebsd.mc,v 1.29 2003/12/24 21:15:09
gshapiro Exp $')

 

Sending the console o/p of Build to a text file it looks as follows:

Stop in /root/install_software/sendmail/sendmail-8.13.5.

 

To see what happened, I tried replacing the FreeBSD VERSIONID line in
devtools/Site/site.config.m4 with the one for BSD4.4 from the distro if
cf/cf

 

VERSIONID($Id: generic-bsd4.4.mc,v 8.10 1999/02/07 07:26:02 gshapiro Exp $)

 

but it throws the same error(s).

 

Can anyone who is used to looking at these files spot anything
unusual-looking? Is there some variable or option I should be
setting/changing to get it to work?

 

Does anybody have a sendmail m4 file for FreeBSD 5.3 which works/compiles
which they would be prepared to share for me to try to modify? Any pointers
to something suitable online?

 

Needs are simple (I think) - to send/receive email across the LAN and
to/from the outside world. For external email I have two ISP mail accounts
which will accept smtp. I also have a couple of internet domain MX records
pointing to my IP address and would like to use these to set up and service
email addresses on those domains, but not necessarily immediately.

 

Apologies for -v mode.

Many thanks for any help.

 

Charles Brewster
