Subject:   Authoritative guide to configuring Sendmail to use a relay for outgoing mail on FreeBSD?
Message-ID:  <rtkafk$mp8$>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

For educational purposes [1], I have to answer the question: "Configure 
Sendmail [...] to use a relay for outgoing mail.

It has be sendmail and not a substitute smtp client such as ssmtp or 

According to [2], it seems I have to edit; however. 
according to an older post on this list [3], one would have to run 
"make" in /etc/mail and then edit the generated file, presumably 

On IRC (freenode/#freebsd), I have been told that I can edit any .mc 
files, then run "make" and that will generate an .cf file. For example >>

So, I am basically confused and I wonder if there is a canonical way to 
do that on FreeBSD.
