Sendmail problem with masquerading

Sendmail problem with masquerading

Sendmail problem with masquerading

I am having a problem with my sendmail configuration I have masquerading on but when I send a mail to multiple people it masquerades my email but not the others? see the sample below:

From: name@domain.net
Sent: Friday, July 24, 2009 9:42 AM
To: name2@machine.domain.net; name3@machine.domain.net; name4@machine.domain.net
Subject: Used Inventory

in this way if someone does a reply to all names 2,3,4 and 5 bounce back as bad addresses.

how can I have it masquerade all email addresses from my domain?



RE: Sendmail problem with masquerading

I had some issue with this as well and this fixed it for me

dnl # masquerade not just @mydomainalias.com, but @*.mydomainalias.com as well

RE: Sendmail problem with masquerading

Thanks normntwrk

I made these changes to my system and it didn't fix my original problem but it did fix a few others. the original problem only seems to happen if i send a mail internally to someone without the domain name added like this:

mail gary

it will be delivered but will show up with gary@machinename.domainname.net

RE: Sendmail problem with masquerading

How about the local-host-names   file- include all aliases for your machine here.

include  your domainname.net   as well as the fully qualified name in here
