Re: sendmail relaying denied


thanks very much, i think i could solve the problem:

the machine also serves as my local router which does the ppp connection to
my "provider". The problem was, that in the boot process, sendmail was started 
before the ppp link came up, so, default gateway and dns was not there at that 
time an somehow sendmail semms to require that for properly startup.
