i'm having a bit of trouble getting mail sent out from my
recently-installed list server. according to my sendmail
documentation i'm allowing relay from my local host, and in
# Check the /usr/share/doc/sendmail-8.11.6/README.cf file for a description
# of the format of this file. (search for access_db in that file)
# The /usr/share/doc/sendmail-8.11.6/README.cf is part of the sendmail-doc
# by default we allow relaying from localhost...
the symptom is that i can access my list's subscription
website and subscribe. i get the next page that says:
Confirmation from your email address is required, to
prevent anyone from subscribing you without permission.
Instructions are being sent to you at michael at ecsd.com.
and then i see in my /var/log/messages:

ruleset=check_rcpt, arg1=<michael at ecsd.com>,
relay=localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1], reject=551 5.7.1
we do not relay
normally from this same host i can send email anywhere
(including to michael at ecsd.com) so it is something that
mailman is adding (or perhaps leaving off?).
normally i send email from pine, and i have in pine
specifically set my domain. it occurred to me that i've
never told mailman what domain to use. perhaps it's picking
up some default which i never bothered setting? where would
it get this info? not hostname, since that gives a valid
any ideas gleefully accepted, with much appreciation.
