Err, it does for "Fido users on 5:7211/1" (you mean points ?), or do they
pick their mail on another format (eg when I still had some regular points
they used PPP to connect and send/receive mail with smtp; it was easier
for them, and no problem for me)
JH> The section from sendmail.cf that you quoted was the part that

You mean this ?
> R$*<@$*.f1.n7211.z5.fidonet.org> $#fido $@ $2.f1.n7211.z5 $: $1<@$2.f1.n7211.z5.fidonet.org>
first don't manually edit the sendmail.cf if you don't really know its
syntax, it is really complex and you can easily make big errors.
Other than that it is not needed at all for such a simple rule, use
the mailertable feature instead; in the *.mc file from which you
create the sendmail.mc put a line "FEATURE(mailertable)" (if not allready
there); then in the mailertable you can have a line:
# .domain or machine transport:route-via-this-one
second, eeeh... what was your problem again ? (sorry but it isn't really
clear from the parcial messages I saw here).
You can put as many routing rules in the mailertable file as you want.
You can also override the default routing by adding a rule for domain "."
eg: you route 5:7211/1.* directly to them, all fidonet and FTN to
your uplink (say, 1:23/4) and all the rest by uucp (or better uucp-dom)
to uucp machine "goman":
then you recompile the mailertable database
(makemap hash /etc/mail/mailertable < /etc/mail/mailertable)
