Description Philip Prindeville 2006-01-11 15:47:00 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
The shipped /etc/mail/access file contains the following entries:

# by default we allow relaying from localhost...
localhost.localdomain           RELAY
localhost                       RELAY                       RELAY

this is deprecated syntax, and should be replaced by "Connect:..." instead.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install sendmail
2. cat /etc/mail/access

Actual Results:  Above.

Expected Results:  Should be:

# by default we allow relaying from localhost...
Connect:localhost.localdomain           RELAY
Connect:localhost                       RELAY
Connect:                       RELAY

Wondering if you need more information about this defect or not.  Seems fairly
straightforward, and I've included what I suspect is the fix.
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 18:03:32 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

It is still present in FC5.
Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2006-07-19 06:04:43 EDT
Fixed in fc-5-updates in rpm sendmail-8.13.7-2.fc5.1 and in rawhide in rpm
sendmail-8.13.7-3 or newer.
