Standard sendmail configuration
Execute the command mkdev cf
to perform sendmail configuration.
The major tasks of mkdev cf are to:
lead you through
an interactive configuration utility
for entering information needed for the sendmail configuration
file, such as the host and domain name of the local system,
the identity (if present) of a UUCP
gateway and UUCP connections, and
the identity (if present) of an X.400 gateway
combine the information you enter with
a default configuration source file to build
and install a standard sendmail configuration file.
If successful, the configuration file
/usr/lib/sendmail.cf is created.
The default configuration created here supports both UUCP and
Internet style addressing.
The user entered information allows a network administrator to designate a
the network as
the UUCP gateway machine, which will process
all UUCP requests for the net or subnet.
If an X.400 gateway is specified by the user information,
sendmail also will forward mail that
is addressed in X.400 style to that gateway.
The user information also provides for telling sendmail
to use NIS maps to define mail aliases.
