Description Daniel Senie 2003-07-31 08:34:30 EDT
Description of problem:

Users sending email via Squirrelmail trigger complaints that sendmail is 
sending with -f, without a user being listed in /etc/mail/trusted-users.

Example from sendmail's logging output (with identifying info altered):

Jul 30 14:16:16 hostname sendmail[31415]: xxxxxxxxxxx: Authentication-Warning:
 XXXXX.example.com: apache set sender to user@example.net using -f

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

adding apache into trusted-users removes the issue. Would recommend this 
approach, but it should be documented as there could be implications if there 
are virtual hosting setups on the same server.

Comment 1 Gary Benson 2004-01-08 06:12:25 EST
This is something that individual mail admins should address because,
as you say, SquirrelMail might not be the only program on the server
that is sending mail.
