Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 126344
Backport of "greet_pause" to sendmail 8.12.x
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:45 EST
Description of problem:
Sendmail 8.13 (currently in development) adds the greet_pause ruleset
which enables open proxy and SMTP slamming protection. The feature
can take an argument specifying the milliseconds to wait.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Actual results / Expected results:
Adding this patch to Red Hat's sendmail as long as 8.13 isn't stable
and released, yet - proving already a new spam blocking option.
This patch is also maybe interesting for RHEL users using sendmail in
bigger environments to protect better before spam.

I only can say: Thank you, Alexander for backporting! :-)
Fixed in rawhide in rpm sendmail-8.13.0-1 or newer.
