    I recently was able to get sendmail working on our Debian server. However, there is a small problem. I can send email to:


    jsmith@DOMAIN

    but NOT to:

    jsmith@DOMAIN.com

    I get this error: stat=User unknown and dsn=5.1.1 in /var/log/mail.log

    We also have an alias domain (jsmith@ALTDOMAIN.com) that works fine.

    How can I get jsmith@DOMAIN.com to work? Thanks!!

    Update:

    Here is our configuration:

    computer 1
    Debian Linux with sendmail

    computer 2
    MS Server with Exchange
    DOMAIN.COM

    When we send email from computer 1, it goes to computer 2 (the smart host). However, if the email address we use is jsmith@DOMAIN.COM, it sends it to computer 1. I saw the test email in /var/mail/jsmith.

    How can we get it to send from computer 1 to computer 2 while specifying DOMAIN.COM?

    Thanks!
