My original question was:

> I am using sendmail that comes with Solaris 2.4.
> I can get it to reciev email on multiple domains using
> "Cm domain1 domain2" line in file.
> How can I configure it to set up users for sending as if
> from multiple (virtual?) domains? So I should be able
> to send as and from the same
> machine.
> Do I need to get Sendmail v8 for this? If so, Which version should I

I received several responses for my question. From these responses,
it is clear to me that I need Sendmail v8, otherwise you have
to do a lot of kludging, especially if you are not using NIS
which is the case for me.

I have not yet made the switch to sendmail v8, but here is the
summary of how you can go about doing it.

Get the latest Sendmail (8.7.5) from
along with the db packages that come with sendmail.

The Sendmail FAQ has a section on how to set up virtual domains if
you have sendmail v8.
