How to configure sendmail to send mail using an external gmail SMTP server?
My system is debian8.1 ,sendmail has been installed.
I want to use the sendmail as a external gmail SMTP way to send mail .
Some article say “vi /etc/mail.rc” to add the following lines :
set firstname.lastname@example.org set smtp=smtp.gmail.com set smtp-auth-user=yourname set smtp-auth-password=yourpasswd set smtp-auth=login
There is no /etc/mail.rc in my filesystem.
ls /etc/mail access helpfile sendmail.cf submit.cf access.db local-host-names sendmail.conf submit.mc address.resolve m4 sendmail.mc tls aliases Makefile service.switch trusted-users aliases.db peers service.switch-nodns databases sasl smrsh
Which file will be chosen to add the lines?
