I’ve had a problem at another hosting company and I would be willing to leave that company if I found a solution to my problem at dreamhost. I feel this must be a common problem that others have encountered.
Here is the setup: This company is hosting my web site, which is, say, mydomain.com. I have an external mail server, pointed to by my mx records, at mail.mydomain.com. The problem is that when I use sendmail from within a cgi script to send to an address at mydomain.com, the mail gets trapped in the hosting company’s internal mail system. There is probably a solution to this by changing the sendmail config file, but I don’t have access to that file. Has anyone else solved this problem at dreamhost?
