Hi,

If you are running sendmail 8.9.x, the you have the relay option disabled by
default, you have to create a file named /etc/mail/relay-domains, and put in
there the IP addresses of the computers you want to relay mail trough your
server, it can also be a complete class:
10.10.99.251
or
10.10.99
for the complete class C Network.

Ales
