    I need to disable using local mail server on the default domain, i've moved this to google mail hosting for multiple reasons. can someone assist? most mail is routed properly but stuff done locally is not.

    Default same problem

    I have the same problem. Is there no one who can help? Using Sendmail to my own domain name never gets sent outside.

    To remedy this situation, you'll want to add a few lines to the Sendmail configuration, specifically:

    1> Edit /etc/mail/ -- add the following two entries (copy/paste -- you need to make sure you get the back-tick and forward-tick's correct).

    define(`MAIL_HUB', `')

    2> Rebuild the file from the config file with this command:

    m4 /etc/mail/ > /etc/

    This will cause all internal mailings to look at the actual MX record rather than internally for mail that is sent locally.
