Hi,

I would appreciate if someone can help in this sendmail config.  I'm new
at this mail routing stuff.

I run a BBS with dailup UUCP mail (userid@domain.org) currently.  Recently
I have got a Class C address and 56k leased line.  I plan to put both the
BBS and my Web server/DNS (FreeBSD) onto the net via my router as gateway
and forget about UUCP!

I have to assign the nodename for the BBS to   bbs.domain.org   and
the nodename for the Web server to   www.domain.org.

How do I configure sendmail.cf and/or DNS MX record so that my users on the 
BBS will _NOT_ require to change their email from    userid@domain.org   to    
userid@bbs.domain.org?  Or in other words, all I need here is to correctly
route incoming mails for   userid@domain.org   to the BBS while mails for  
userid@www.domain.org  to the Web Server?   Both the BBS and the Web Server 
runs SMTP.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Andrew
