Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187444
msp.m4 always overrides confDELIVERY_MODE
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
In all 8.12 and 8.13 versions of sendmail, cf/feature/msp.m4 unconditionally
sets confDELIVERY_MODE to interactive, thereby overriding any attempt to set
confDELIVERY_MODE in submit.mc.
The attached (simple, one-line) patch corrects this issue.
(I've filed this bug against FC5, but this applies to all FC and RHEL releases
that contain sendmail 8.12 or sendmail 8.13.)
Additionally, I've submitted a bug report (plus this patch) upstream to

Patch to fix the bug with cf/feature/msp.m4.
Bah, my bad--this patch won't work, because msp.m4 can't conditionally set
confDELIVERY_MODE, because confDELIVERY_MODE will always be set to something
(either what was specified in submit.mc, or the default of "background") by the
time the macros in msp.m4 are evaluated.
The *only* way to override the confDELIVERY_MODE in submit.mc is to ensure that
it is defined after FEATURE(`msp'):
