sendmail config issues
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
This is probably fairly simple, but I'll admit to only slight knowledge
concerning sendmail (not my choice :-).
Here's the situation: we have a collection of unix machines that are all
configured to send mail to a mailhub. That works. Then, if the mail is sent
only to "username", then it attempts to deliver it locally on that mailhub.
If it was sent to "firstname.lastname@example.org", then the mailhub forwards it onto
the company-wide mailhub, which handles it. However, unless that user (in
the "username" situation) has a unix account (and not everybody does), the
delivery attempt fails. Since I can tell this is becoming confusing, I'll
try and diagram it:
sent to local user with unix account (note this *probably* ends up at the
central mailhub eventually, but that isn't gaurunteed)
"user" -> mailhub -> check for local account -> success.
sent to local user without unix account
"user" -> mailhub -> check for local account -> failure.
sent to local user, doesn't matter if they have unix account or not
"email@example.com" -> mailhub -> company-wide mailhub -> success.
I just need to have my mailhub check for a local account, and if that fails,
then forward it on to the central mailhub, which will be able to take care of
it. However, I can't just tack micron.com onto every incoming email, as some
of the "username" email /needs/ to stay on our local mailhub. I don't know
if I'm make the proverbial mountain of a molehill, or overlooking something
obvious, but any help/tips/what to do is greatly appreciated.
