It doesn't much matter from what I can tell. I ran the following test,
where lists.biz2tek.com is both the email and URL host.
root at biz2tek 11:46am [/etc] 14> telnet lists.biz2tek.com 25
Connected to lists.biz2tek.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 biz2tek.com ESMTP
mail from:<mailman at lists.biz2tek.com>
rcpt to:<blah at mengland.net>
354 go ahead
just a test.
250 ok 1116262038 qp 32097
Connection closed by foreign host.
root at biz2tek 11:47am [/etc] 15>
The above failed previously, but I updated /etc/tcp.smtp to relay from
lists.biz2tek.com, and now it works...but SMTP based outbound mail still
does not work.
I still can get the sendmail-based mechanism (with qmail impersonating
sendmail) to work, but the SMTP-based mechanism does not work.
And yes, this does appear to be qmail problem (I'll followup the other
notes). And yes, qmail does have a sendmail "drop in" as far as I can tell
(I've been using it for months now).
I realize this is a Mailman group, so I may stop with this thread (other
then following up a couple other points) given that it appears to be a
qmail issue...but any input is appreciated. :)
