SENDMAILCONFIG(8) System Manager's Manual SENDMAILCONFIG(8)

NAME

sendmailconfig - configure sendmail for Debian systems

SYNOPSIS

sendmailconfig [--no-reload]

DESCRIPTION

sendmailconfig is used to simplify the configuration of sendmail(8) for use on Debian systems.
In the simplest case, you may run this program to (re)configure sendmail for your Debian system at any time. It will modify the file /etc/mail/sendmail.mc in order to create a working sendmail configuration which will be written to the file /etc/mail/sendmail.cf.
For advanced configurations, you can modify the sendmail.mc file before generating sendmail.cf. Future invocations of sendmailconfig will preserve these changes provided they are made at the end of the file.
Normally sendmailconfig will ask if you want to reload sendmail after making changes to its configuration. The --no-reload option will avoid this question.
