Invalid Global DNS name and sendmail
freebsd at skyhawk.ca

I've got a machine on the local network, with a local DNS name (which is
not a valid name in the global DNS).
My problem is that I cannot kludge sendmail into behaving nicely and
allow the periodic(8) mailings to get through.
The machine is named psyche.local
domain1.com is a domain that we own, but this machine has nothing to do
with it. I want the emails delivered to andrew at domain1.com. This is not
an email server in any way - All I care about it getting my periodic output.
Here are the settings I'm trying :
root andrew at domain1.com
andrew andrew at domain1.com
root : andrew at domain1.com
192.168.2.10 psyche psyche.local
With all the configurations I've tried, emails are rejected by my
smarthost with an error like "sender address root at psyche.local invalid;
domain does not exist".
What I'd like to do is find a way to alter sendmail's perception of my
hostname. Ideally, this would only affect sendmail and nothing else.
I can't possibly be the only person running such a configuration. How
have other people in the list worked past this?
