Sendmail & relaying from network

  I have three computers networked together - one Freebsd 5.4 and two
  WinXP boxes.

  I cannot get Sendmail to relay messages from the two WinXP boxes. I
  continue to receive an error message that relaying is not allowed. The
  only way I can get it to work is to use the "FEATURE(`promiscuous_relay')"
  directive. That is risky, and therefore I do not want to use it.

  The two WinXP boxes are and respectively. The
  FreeBSD box is names '' and the main WinXP box is
  ''. What sort of directive should I be using to
  allow the WinXP box to send mail through Sendmail and still have a
  secure system?       

  Add the IP addresses of the WinXP boxes to /etc/mail/relay-domains

  See in the Sendmail FAQ
