Suzanne,

Wrong place, but just a few pointers -
Try the Newsgroup comp.mail.sendmail.
Also look at the FAQ at http://www.sendmail.org in particular the .mc file
when using m4 to build.

You need to tell the group what version of Sendmail and what files you have
populated in the /etc/mail or /etc areas - including the relay-domains,
aliases, access, virtusertable, local-names (I think), etc, etc.
