"A CAT scan should take less time than a PET scan.  For a CAT scan,
  they're only looking for one thing, whereas a PET scan could result in
  a lot of things."    - Carl Princi, 2002/07/19

In that case where do I tell sendmail to relay this? I have added smtp:[] smtp:[]
Into /etc/mail/mailertable
Also it says to put the domain in /etc/mail/relay-domains

Is this correct?
