Hello

Given: Some OS/2 systems with IBM TCPIP, in a university LAN.
Sendmail not running in server mode.
I have a need to make sendmail to deliver all mail to a smarthost.
Is this possible with the sendmail of IBM TCPIP 2.0, and if not,
does there exist a sendmail with this capapbility already ported
to OS/" ?

If it is possible, how ?

Regards, and with thanks in advance for any hint,

Christoph Weber-Fahr

Before the rewrite rules section, add the following:
#Define host to forward mail through
DVhostname.do.main

Where hostname.do.main is the host to route mail through.
Then comment out the following rule in ruleset s0 (bottom of sendmail.cf)
#
# Send domain address to tcp. This includes domain literals [IP quads].
# User is full focused path.
#
#R$*<@$+>$* $#tcp$@$2$:$1<@$2>$3
^---comment it out with a "#" character


Then, add a rewrite rule to S0:
#Following rewrite rule redirects all mail through the gateway defined
#by DV
R$*<@$+>$*<tab>$#tcp$@$V$:$1<@$2>$3

Where <tab> is a tab character (ascii 9).

Maybe this could go in the FAQ file?
