Howto allow specific domains to relay via sendmail

Howto allow specific domains to relay via sendmail

Howto allow specific domains to relay via sendmail

I want to allow relaying through my server for specific domains.
I know I can allow ip numbers by adding: RELAY
to my /etc/mail/access file.

I'm sure that it can be done for specific domains but my tests have failed so far.
mydomain.com RELAY

Has anybody any ideas how to achieve this??

RE: Howto allow specific domains to relay via sendmail

you have to run the command:
makemap hash /etc/mail/access < /etc/mail/access

after editing and then restart sendmail with kill -HUP PIDof sendmail
After that, it should work. You may want to add your home IP address too, if needed.
