I am using Sendmail on a Centos server to send email for PHP scripts, but the problem is that mail is delivered to a local mailbox on the machine rather than what is specified in the MX records for the domain - which actually point to another machine I use for email.
I would like sendmail to not try and locally deliver mail for the domain the machine is setup for, is there a simple way to disable local delivery?
The domain is not in the local-host-names file.
I've already done lots of googling and I have looked at:
Sendmail Configuration to not deliver mail to local machine
Disable local delivery in Sendmail
But either there is no answer or it is not suitable.
I don't want to relay to another server, i just want it to send mail regardless of domain.
To provide an example:
I have two servers, one is the mail server at mail.example.com and a web server which is example.com, when I use the smtp service on the web server it currently routes mail to a local mailbox on example.com, but it should be going to mailboxes on mail.example.com
Output of sendmail -bt returns:
ADDRESS TEST MODE (ruleset 3 NOT automatically invoked) Enter > 3,0 email@example.com canonify input: info @ example . com Canonify2 input: info Canonify2 returns: info canonify returns: info parse input: info Parse0 input: info Parse0 returns: info ParseLocal input: info ParseLocal returns: info Parse1 input: info Parse1 returns: $# local $: info parse returns: $# local $: info
