Re: Sendmail question.
What you are asking for is called masquerading (people on
hosta.foo.com are trying to masquerade as people from foo.com). This
was easy even in pre m4 das of sendmail configuration, and in these
new days of m4 ease this is a piece of cake.
This /etc/mail/sendmail.mc shall implement what you want (put
this on hostb.foo.com, and make sure that mail sent to foo.com from
the outside works).
I've also set it so that mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org shall be
delivered locally (no need to hop from a to b to a). I have commented
out the anti-spam stuff I use for myself.
I hope this helps.
