Sorry but I'm just looking at this thread on the fly and can't be more helpful but what is in /etc/mail/mailer.conf?

This is "box stock" right out of the distribution. I does include/invoke the newaliases.

Code:
# $FreeBSD: releng/10.1/etc/mail/mailer.conf 93858 2002-04-05 04:25:14Z gshapiro $
#
# Execute the "real" sendmail program, named /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
#
sendmail  /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
send-mail  /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
mailq  /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
newaliases  /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
hoststat  /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
purgestat  /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail

I've experimented with the DNS configuration this afternoon. I've discovered that I cannot ping the server by name or IP address. I'm going to resolve this problem and then continue with sendmail.

Good news . . .I have resolved the problem (pun intended?) and the solution is elegantly simple with regard to configuration files, etc. I had to revisit sendmail and BIND (BTW, named is chroot'ed).
  • /var/named/named.conf
  • /var/named/zonefiles/db.archaxis.net (the primary master SOA zonefile)
  • /etc/rc.conf
  • /etc/hosts (very special attention here!)
  • /etc/hosts.allow
  • /etc/mail/aliases.db
  • /etc/mail/access.db
  • /etc/mail/virtusertable.db
  • /etc/mail/local-host-names

I will not go into details with this post; I plan document in detail and will post ASAP. I mentioned that

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
I just lost (. . .colon cancer) a very good friend who would always say,
This is going to make perfect sense . . .once I understand it.
How so very true.
