Is it possible to force sendmail to use a specified host name for

I'm not entirely sure that I understand your problem. If you
have a unique
domain name, and your client also has a unique domain name, and
records are properly configured, then sending email from domain
name A to domain
name B should just work, regardless of how close your actual IP
I agree whole heartedly that it "should just work" but time and time
again we have see where it does not work.
Having said that, you can put a domain name and IP address in
/etc/hosts on the
originating computer and that computer will henceforth use the IP
That would work if I was looking to use a specific IP address but
would like to use a specific host name. For example I would like
all mail outbound to example.com to bypass the DNS/MX entry of
mail.example.com and use instead backupmx.isp.com not just the IP
Address of backupmx.isp.com.
Thanks muchly for your suggestion.
Hi, It has been some time since I have had to do anything with Sendmail
like this, but I believe mailertable is what you need. See
Hope this helps
