Description Steve Bonneville 2004-06-11 10:47:39 EDT
Description of problem:

Between 8.12.10-1 and 8.12.11-3.3, the default configuration in
/etc/mail/sendmail.mc changed to uncomment the defines enabling
STARTTLS certs for the server and for SSL client authentication.
However, no certificates are actually included, leading to errors like
the following in /var/log/maillog:

Jun 11 10:22:48 server1 sendmail[4998]: STARTTLS=server: file
/etc/mail/certs/cert.pem unsafe: No such file or directory

These lines should probably be commented back out in the default
configuration, unless and until we somehow autogenerate appropriate
SSL certificates.
