Description Andrew Kroeger 2008-05-18 05:02:37 EDT
Description of problem:
After a fresh F9 install, I merged the changes I had made to my old FC6
sendmail.mc file into the one installed by F9.  I rebooted the machine and
sendmail started without any errors.  After a few days, I finally noticed that
although sendmail is running, it is not running based off of the sendmail.mc I

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install basic F9 (no sendmail-cf package)
2. Modify sendmail.mc & reboot
Actual results:
sendmail.cf was not rebuilt, yet there were no error messages displayed at boot.
 Sendmail was running, but it was not running with the configuration I expected.

Expected results:
sendmail.cf is rebuilt from the modified sendmail.mc when the sendmail service
is started at boot.
