First.. Those lines worked just fine in the "old" sendmail, but
changing them to:
:: 1 localhost BAPhD.gihon.org.au
127.0.0.1 localhost BAPhD.gihon.org.au
worked wonders with the "new" sendmail. No huge delays - sendmail loads
on boot as it should.
BUT I still can't get past my DSL modem :-(
Note. Mine is a private network and does not have a static IP no, so
you could not resolve it, anyway.
Q. Where could I go from here? Obviously something is still "not right".
I think there is a command that gives the name if you give the address
and vice versa - but what IS that command? Mind you, I'm not sure that
is an issue.
Thanks for your help - and patience - so far.
