I think that you can do virtual hosting, as per your requests, on sendmail
So, you have to:
1. Setup correctly the DNS for a new domain putting a MX record into the
zone file as bellow. For more details refer to
newdomain.com. IN MX 10 yourmailserver.yourdomain.com.
2. Create a sendmail configuration file, for example vh.mc, on
/usr/src/sendmail/cf/cf directory enabling these features:
FEATURE(`virusertable', `hash /etc/virtusers')dnl
4. Create the sendmail.cf file :
m4 vh.mc > /etc/sendmail.mc
3. Create the /etc/virtusers file, putting on it :
when user is a normal user on your mail server
4. Do :
makemap hash /etc/virtusers < virtusers
5. Create the /etc/sendmail.cw file, which must have:
6. On the /etc/mail/relay-domains file, put enter square brackets ip
addresses of your host (including dynamically assigned ip addresses for
7. Restart sendmail and dns
Please tell me if this resolve your problem.
