Linux Sendmail Administration Pdf

Sendmail daemon: Receive SMTP mail. ❑ Listens to port 25 to process incoming mail. ❑ Started during system startup,. ❍ Linux: /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail. This document describes the setup, care and feeding of Electronic Mail (e−mail) under Linux. It is primarily intended for administrators, rather than users. This software relies on the transport agents described in the Mail Administrator's HOWTO (which also include user-agent configuration and troubleshooting tips.

It is not tied to any one transport protocol -- its function may be likened to a crossbar switch, relaying messages from one domain into another. In the process, it can do a limited amount of message header editing to put the message into a format that is appropriate for the receiving domain. All of this is done under the control of a configuration file. Due to the requirements of flexibility for sendmail, the configuration file can seem somewhat unapproachable. However, there are only a few basic configurations for most sites, for which standard configuration files have been supplied. Most other configurations can be built by adjusting an existing configuration file incrementally. However, since sendmail is designed to work in a wider world, in many cases it can be configured to exceed these protocols. These cases are described herein. Although sendmail is intended to run without the need for monitoring, it has a number of features that may be used to monitor or adjust the operation under unusual circumstances. These features are described. Section one describes how to do a basic sendmail installation. Section two explains the day-to-day information you should know to maintain your mail system.
