Help: Stripping machine name from sendmail - Linux / Unix Administration

Hi I need to route all email via Sendmail at my Unix box through my Exchange server, but the problem is that when the emails get relayed they keep the machine name example. atlantis.crawford.com and some sites do Reverse DNS on email addresses so they treat that address as spam. I need to find out how to stripe the machine name in sendmail so the mail looks like crawford.com. Any idea how I can do that in sendmail ?? Thanks, Bill...

    Hi

    I need to route all email via Sendmail at my Unix box through my
    Exchange server, but the problem is that when the emails get relayed
    they keep the machine name example. atlantis.crawford.com and some
    sites do Reverse DNS on email addresses so they treat that address as
    spam.

    I need to find out how to stripe the machine name in sendmail so the
    mail looks like crawford.com.

    Any idea how I can do that in sendmail ??

    Thanks,

    From this article :

    You need to use "Dj" to setup the visible.hostname.org", eg:

    # Set from address as crawford.com
    Djcrawford.com

    Then setup the forwarding with 'DS', eg:

    #
    # "Smart" relay host (may be null)
    Dchange.mail.relay.example.com

    [ Added comp.mail.sendmail and Followup-To -> comp.mail.sendmail ]

    In comp.unix.admin org.uk: [/ref]
     
     

     
     
     
     

    This isn't how one should configure sendmail, please never ever
    touch sendmail.cf, edit sendmail.mc and generate sendmail.cf with
    help of m4.
