Re: Configure SMTP anti-relaying

Sendmail doesn't allow relaying by default.
You may want to tell it to allow your Exchanger server
to relay (use relay-domains or the access map).

a mailertable entry might send messages for your domain to the
exchange box eg:
example.com  	smtp:exchange.example.com

see also sendmail.org, sendmail.net for some docs as well
as several books, news groups etc dedicated to sendmail.
