    I have just got a Win2000 server with Hosting Controller installed on it. I am running both my primary and secondary nameservers on Cpanel (linux) servers. I want the win2000 server to use the same nameservers but I was'nt sure if this was possible. I thought I had found a solution to my problems as Hosting Controller does support this kind of setup and has a small component that can be installed on the linux server that is running the primary nameserver but this component requires sendmail to be installed on that server. Cpanel servers do not have sendmail and instead use EXIM.

    Is there any hope for me? I would appreciate it if you guys could suggest some solution to this.

    Thanks

    Exim's MTA should work as well as sendmail would. Theres nothing staring at me in the face to say it wouldnt.

    Sendmail

    I've found EXIM to use as sendmail in almost the identical fashion.
    /usr/sbin/sendmail is the path on accounts if that helps

    Where would the config files be for sendmail?

    Doing a whereis/locate I can't seem to find them on any of my servers

    If you want to add pipes or send incoming emails to an external script and ...

    /etc/valiases

    directory is the right place
