Holding local-hostnames in LDAP is it possible?



  • 1. Backup Email Server
    I have a mail server on one of my clients (client A) networks, serviced by DSL. I also have a sendmail server (server B) sitting in a regional datacenter servicing email to other clients of mine. If the DSL line at client A goes down, how do I spool the email at server B until the DSL line comes back up? I already know I need to add another lower priority MX record to DNS, more specifically, what do I need to do to sendmail that is going to allow me to spool client A's mail for future delivery without disturbing the email that is being delivered locally to other clients?
  • 2. Lost input channel error?
    Using sendmail 8.13.4 under linux, I can send and receive email using my mail server everywhere EXCEPT for a host on my home private network named pluto. The sendmail server is on my home network also. It's IP address is I can't send email from pluto who's IP address is Even though the error message below indicates that authentication failed, I have the same authentication and email settings in my Kmail client at work, and can send email through the same mail server. It looks as though Kmail on pluto is dropping the connection, but I'm not sure why. Any ideas? -Thanks 02371 <<< EHLO pluto 02371 >>> 250-mydomain.com Hello pluto [], pleased to meet you 02371 >>> 250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES 02371 >>> 250-PIPELINING 02371 >>> 250-EXPN 02371 >>> 250-VERB 02371 >>> 250-8BITMIME 02371 >>> 250-SIZE 30000000 02371 >>> 250-DSN 02371 >>> 250-ETRN 02371 >>> 250-AUTH DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN 02371 >>> 250-DELIVERBY 02371 >>> 250 HELP 02371 <<< AUTH PLAIN YmVybmllAGJlcm5pZQBIZXJkczM= 02371 >>> 535 5.7.0 authentication failed 02371 <<< [EOF] 02371 >>> 421 4.4.1 mydomain.com Lost input channel from pluto []

Holding local-hostnames in LDAP is it possible?

I was wondering whether it is possible to store the local-hostnames for 
the Mailserver in LDAP and have sendmail pull the information from there.
We have an (unfortunate) setup where the primary MX accepts Mail for 
about 200 domains. The Backup MX would have to extract that information 
to set the mailertable entries correctly. This is only a simply queue 
only spillover backup that will then deliver to the Master MX.

I need to keep the mailertable on the backend and the local-hostnames on 
the frontend synchronised.

Maybe this is something where I could allpy LDAP-Routing? I am very 
grateful for tips and tricks.
