Description John Bass 2006-10-28 23:12:45 EDT
Description of problem: Upgrade replaced configured sendmail.cf file with
default stub. Since this leaves most production mail relays crippled, the
default upgrade script should leave production files in place, and install as

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

How reproducible:
Appears to be always, did both our servers

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade from FC5 to FC6 via CDROM
Actual results:
sendmail.cf file has been replaced with default stub, leaving sendmail
effectively disabled as a gateway mail forwarding relay.

Expected results:
new default sendmail.cf files should be installed as sendmail.cf.rpmnew

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2007-07-31 09:36:36 EDT
sendmail recreated outdated sendmail.cf on every start. If you are modifying
your configuration, you have to use sendmail.mc and other files from /etc/mail.
