    Default sendmail/postfix configuration

    Hi all,

    I run MDK 9.2 with KDE 3.1. KMail 1.5.3, Sendmail 8.12.9 & Postfix 2.0.13.

    I want to use sendmail to send mails but i keep coming up with a problem
    when sending. This is a snippet from the returned mail in /var/spool/mail:

    #################################################

    The Postfix program

    <tld>: host smtp.destination.tld[ <ip address >] said: 553
    <domain.tld>: Sender address rejected: Domain not found (in
    reply to RCPT TO command)

    #################################################

    and then later:

    #################################################

    Action: failed
    Status: 5.0.0
    Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; host smtp.destination.tld[<ip address>] said:
    553 <domain.tld>: Sender address rejected: Domain not found (in
    reply to RCPT TO command)

    #################################################

    I've set the hostname of my PC to correspond to the domain of my ISP. I was
    able to send a mail to a hotmail account but it gets bounced from an SMTP
    client.

    I've looked in man and had a look at some web resources but to honest I
    don't even know where to start. Do I edit main.cf in /etc/postfix or
    sendmail.cf in /etc/mail? And what do I need to look at? There are so
    many configuration options it's baffling.

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    P.

    Told you I was baffled! Disabled the postfix service and everything seems
    to work now.

    I'm assuming I can uninstall postfix unless it's needed for something else?
    If the answer is in the affirmative, don't trouble to reply.

    Thanks BT.

    This will probably add to your troubles and if everythings working then
    there's no need to change but I've always found Postfix much easier to
    setup than Sendmail. Everyone's opinion on this is different of course :-)
     

    Postfix and Sendmail do essentially the same job so yes, you can uninstall
    Postfix. Just thought I'd add that as I was replying anyway :-)

    This doesn't turn up any results. I'm assuming "bittwistr" is a typo, but I
    tried both anyway.

    And I'm assuming "the first box" is where it says:

    "Find messages - with all of the words"

    However, "bittwistr" and "bittwister" in "Author" gave no results either.
