Description Derek Martin 2003-01-16 22:18:15 UTC
Description of problem:
Using the sendmail-8.12.5-7 package from RH8, sendmail seems to ignore trusted
users, producing a warning header like this:

X-Authentication-Warning: luna.sophic.org: ddm set sender to foo@sophic.org using -f

I tried adding the user in two ways: added it to /etc/mail/trusted-users, and
when that didn't work, I also defined confTRUSTED_USERS in sendmail.mc and
recreated sendmail.cf.  The entries appear to have been created correctly:

#####################
#   Trusted users   #
#####################

# this is equivalent to setting class "t"
Ft/etc/mail/trusted-users
Troot
Tdaemon
Tuucp
Tddm

However, mail send by ddm with sendmail's -f flag still generates the warning
message.  I even restarted sendmail, though this should not be necessary, since
sendmail invoked on the command line will read the config file (and hence should
notice the Tddm)...

Note that I was able to test that it works fine for root, daemon, and uucp, but
NOT for ddm.

Here's my sendmail.mc:

Thanks.  Oh, FWIW, I tested this on my 7.2 machine running sendmail-8.11.6, and
it worked fine by simply adding the user name to the ct file.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  add user to /etc/mail/trusted-users
2.  send mail using sendmail -f "someaddr@somedomain.com" to yourself
3.  note X-authentication-warning header in headers of received message

Seems to work fine with current 8.12.7-4. If your sendmail already has a
submit.cf, make sure that is also setup correctly.

Comment 2 Derek Martin 2003-01-22 16:54:21 UTC
Ok, but this is not the package that 8.0 ships with.  How do I get it?  There
appears to be no sendmail errata, and no update in the updates directory of the
FTP site.  I can't find this package anywhere on the FTP site...


Comment 3 Derek Martin 2003-01-30 18:51:41 UTC
Ok, I found sendmail 8.12.7 packages in Rawhide, but this is absolutely NOT a
solution to the problem.  Installing these packages requires an updated
libcrypto.so which means that in order to install this package, I have to update
half my system with beta quality software.  Sendmail 8.12.7 is not what is
shipped with Red Hat 8, and I can't run your 8.12 packages, so this is clearly
still a bug.

Comment 4 Florian La Roche 2003-01-31 20:17:59 UTC
This is only a configuration issue, please adjust it with your existing rpm
and all should be working fine.

greetings,

Florian La Roche


Comment 5 Derek Martin 2003-01-31 20:55:23 UTC
Ok, I get it.  I was not aware that there was a seperate config file for the
msp, and didn't get your comment about the submit.cf file above.  It's all set.
 Thanks
