This is only for sendmail *wizards* out there. It took me two
hours of messing round with the /etc/mail/* files on ns1|sage
before I just gave up. After I rebooted both servers to get mail
to default to tao.
After my first "fatal trap" on 01 Sept, I changed (uncommented) my
line on sage's sendmail.cf to get mail going to sage rather than tao.
I do realize that this Cw line means: route all mail for "tao" to
localhost, which here was sage. With this Cw commented out, mail
for kline at thought.org was routed to tao. Uncommented, and mail
stayed in sage.thought.org.
My one question is given that mail defaults to my
ns1.thought.org, HOW can I get it to go to (say) zen.thought.org,
or to tao.thought.org? or to ethos.thought.org? OR what
re-initialization do I have to do? other than a shutdown -r
I thought I had this down cold, but nope.....
PS: Mail from my magnesium.net account mailed explicitedly to
kline at sage.thought.org, kline at ethos.thought.org,
kline at zen.thought.org, or kline at tao.thought.org---in other
words, using the FQDN-- gets to which ever server. But how
do I make "kline at thought.org" reach a specific server??
PS: Apologizes if this seems like an obscure question; it IS....
