Am I right in thinking that you can't just use a normal MUA like mutt or
thunderbird to connect directly to this Exchange server, eliminating all
this messing with sendmail?
Okay. I was expecting the mail server on server02.example.com to be
sendmail, or postfix, or some other such Unix server. I was going to
suggest that do the rewriting of '@fedora.example.com' to '@example.com'
there. If you know how to get Exchange server to do this then that is one
The only other option I can currently think of, assuming that your end
goal is to use the /bin/mail client, is to set up aliases for each
relant user and put them in ~walter/.mailrc
Thus, for Peter you put:
alias peter peter at example.com
in that file.
You would need to maintain some sort of alias file like this for each
MUA you use. Unfortunatly when you change the submit.mc as I described
earlier sendmail does not appear to look at the system wide aliases in
/etc/aliases.db (the binary version of /etc/aliases).
