I'll try it,
well, now I can at least talk to sendmail, but relaying is denied...

The following message could not be delivered because the address
test-owner at lists.first5ventura.org was rejected by host lists.first5ventura.org
550 5.7.1 <test-owner at lists.first5ventura.org>... Relaying denied. IP 
name possibly forged []

Reporting-MTA: dns; otn.com
Arrival-Date: Fri, 29 Aug 2003 09:42:36 -0700

Final-Recipient: rfc822; test-owner at lists.first5ventura.org
Action: failed
Status: 5.7.1
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 550 5.7.1 
<test-owner at lists.first5ventura.org>... Relaying denied. IP name 
possibly forged []

it is not a new install, it is RHL 7.3, but I am so afraid of 
touching anything I do not understand (I have a special fear of 
sendmail...) that I did not touch anything I did not have to...

sendmail.mc is dated Jul 2002 and sendmail.cf is dated Aug 2002

the machine was mainly used as a secondary DNS server, but I stared 
adding stuff to it... calendar cgi, daily web stats (from the WebSTAR 
log files) and now I am adding mailman.
