Hi Guys:

I'm not the only one that's had this problem, so I'm reporting it as a bug.
When I disbale linuxconf from controlling sendmail (mailconf) to install my
own HACKs and FEATUREs, and recompile, sendmail will only accept localhost
for receiving mail.

The way I solved this problem was to manually add the following lines to
the sendmail.cf file:

Cw localhost YYY.XXX.com
Cw XXX.com

where YYY is my host name, XXX is my domain name, and add any other domains
that I do mail hosting for in the same manner. Otherwise, it won't work.


The other thing is that if I reinstall sendmail-*.rpm, the /etc/mail/access
file gets these extra lines added to it, that make sendmail crash when I
restart it.

If you need more specifics, please be sure to contact me.

This information would normaly go into the /etc/sendmail.cw
file, which is enabled by the Fw line in sendmail.cf

Comment 2 Florian La Roche 2000-05-22 11:18:59 EDT
can you please show the wrong lines in /etc/mail/access that are
added? Also the data from /etc/mail/{ip_allow,relay_allow,
name_allow,deny}. The wrong data is coming from one of those files...
