    Hi, Can somebody tell me the steps to configure the sendmail / mailx in RHEL5 server, through i configured the mailx on Solaris, the same is not workable on RHEL5, if possible pls post the steps to configure it with example. Thanks in : Ganesh Batwal.   However, it wasn't quite sufficient. Besides, no good Linux task is solved with only one book purchase. After many failed attempts at configuring sendmail and three visits to the bookstore (I have an undying belief that all my problems can be solved with books), I discovered Richard Blum's new title, sendmail for Linux. The answer to my prayers!

    Basic Configuration Sendmail We are going to configure the MTA first, and the package that is most commonly used is configuration files for sendmail are extremely technical for new users, and should definately be backed up before making any changes, they are so complex in fact that one configuration file is actually used to configure the second file. The mail program is a very basic command-line email utility that can be used to read mail or send mail to users. This program only supports reading the local email queue, not emails stored on remote servers. To send emails using the mail command, you must provide options such as the subject, recipient’s address, carbon copy address, etc. To specify a subject, use the -s option.

    For more information, check out the optional reference, Open Computing "Hands-On" Tutorial: January , Explosion in a Punctuation Factory by Bryan Costales, or Bryan's book, sendmail, also called "the bat book". In test mode, sendmail requires the user to specify an address to rewrite, and which rulesets through which that address should be. If your RHN Satellite Server will serve Monitoring-entitled systems and you wish to acknowledge via email the alert notifications you receive, you must configure sendmail to properly handle incoming mail. This is required by the email redirect feature, which allows you to stop notifying users about a Monitoring-related event with a single reply.
