Symptoms

If the site has an external MX record, then FrontPage mail form doesn't send email properly (it attempts to send it locally).

Resolution


1. Open the /etc/mail/sendmail.mc file of the VDS.


2. Add:


define(`SMART_HOST',` mail.utla.com')
define(`LOCAL_RELAY',` mail.utla.com')


after the following line:


dnl define(`SMART_HOST',`smtp.your.provider')

mail.utla.com should be replaced with the actual mail server. Proceed to control panel and perform mail setting change.
This recompiles the sendmail.cf (For example: Disabling, and then enabling the SMTP authentication).
