Description Mark Huth 2006-11-01 04:21:11 EST
Description of problem: As per $subject, if you try to enable the greet_pause sendmail feature on RHEL3, sendmail returns an error similar to this: /etc/mail/sendmail.mc:123: m4: Cannot open /usr/share/sendmail-cf/feature/greet_pause.m4: No such file or directory Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): sendmail-8.13 with RHEL3.x Steps to Reproduce: 1. Add greet_pause feature to /etc/mail/sendmail.mc: FEATURE(`greet_pause',`<some_wait_value>')dnl 2. Try to compile the sendmail.mc file with either: make -C /etc/mail ... or ... m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf 3. Get the error as per problem description. Expected results: Should be able compile the /etc/mail/sendmail.mc file to produce the sendmail.cf without error. Additional info: As a workaround I copied the /usr/share/sendmail-cf/feature/greet_pause.m4 file from my RHEL4 machine to my RHEL3 machine and recompiled the sendmail.mc. This time it compiled without error and I was able to use greet_pause feature of sendmail for limiting spam. So I suppose the fix for this is just to add the greet_pause.m4 file (from RHEL4 perhaps) to the /usr/share/sendmail-cf/feature directory on RHEL3.

I am sorry, but greet_pause is not part of sendmail-8.12.x. Closing as WONTFIX.
