Configuring sendmail on Solaris 7 and Solaris 8 to accept incoming email

by ServerWatch Staff

This page covers the configuration of sendmail on Solaris 7 and Solaris 8 to accept incoming mail from an ISP using SMTP. Very few ISPs offer an SMTP mail delivery service and most ISPs require you to collect incoming mail using POP3. If your ISP supports POP3 incoming mail only, ignore this page and refer to the notes on the compilation, installation and configuration of fetchmail to collect incoming mail from an ISP's POP3 server.
