Relay by other network

I've used this combination for 1 year now on 4 machines. Why are you
changing sendmail port? Mailscanner starts two instances of sendmail - one
in queued delivery mode accepting incoming connections and one just flushing
out the queue. There is no need to change. If you are attaching port 25 to
Sophos, then I guess you are using their mail gateway and not mailscanner.
MailScanner user the sweep commandline program and is a replacement for the
Sophos Mail Gateway. Relaying in sendmail is controlled thro'
/etc/mail/access file which has entries that look like

IP/domainname/email id  OK/RELAY?REJECT

192.168.0    RELAY will relay for your local Class C subnet assuming it is
192.168.0 subnet.

Restart MailScanner after this. sendmail start up converts this file to a
access.db file. Also take care that sendmail MTA listen to your actual IP
and not

  Did anyone configure mailscanner+sendmail+sophos?

  After I installed mailscanner and sophos on the same pc, I make the
following configuration:

  Sendmail port no: 8888
  Sophos port no: 25 (redirect to sendmail after scanned)

  So that all mail will be scanned before send to sendmail. It also make
relay by other network.

  How can I control the relay domain? Is it the problem of sophos, sendmail
or mailscanner?

  I hope you understand my bad english.

  Appreciate for any help....
