Description of problem:
Redhat package of sendmail 8.13 is missing new long awaited
and must have feature "socketmap" support.

It alows near cooperation with cyrus-imapd and many more
generaly functions.

Created attachment 101466 [details]

Very simple patch for .spec file to enable compile option.

Comment 2 Thomas Woerner 2004-09-09 14:37:11 UTC
The inclusion of socketmap in sendmail would require perl and the
reuirements of perl as additional requirements for sendmail. Perl is a
really big package and socketmap support can not be in a subpackage of
sendmail, because it has to be compiled in sendmail directly. 

Therefore it does not make sense to include socketmap with the current
perl server and client.

Closing as "WONTFIX" for now.

Comment 3 Kenneth Porter 2004-09-27 17:29:20 UTC
The socketmap client is implemented in C. The example client and
server supplied in the package require Perl, but I don't believe
examples should affect the package requirements. They should be
treated as documentation.

The "real" implementation:

The examples:

The example client is used to test actual servers and would only be
used for development.

Another possible application is to store maps in one's favorite DB
(eg. MySQL, PostgreSQL), allowing the DB code to live in a separate

Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2004-10-26 13:03:39 UTC
Fixed in rawhide in rpm sendmail-8.13.1-2.1 or newer: Now with
SOCKETMAP support.

Comment 5 Petr Krištof 2004-10-26 13:18:58 UTC
This allow sendmail/cyrus-imapd to verify local recipient's existence
before accepting email.
Great for antispam defension.

Thank you very much.
