... while talking to mrsmith.divxnetworks.com.:
>>> MAIL From:<firstname.lastname@example.org>
<<< 501 5.5.4
501 5.6.0 email@example.com... Data format error
There are multiple sites I now have to mail form non Red Hat boxes that
report variants on the above error
It appears the weird SIZE=707 AUTHfirstname.lastname@example.org stuff
breaks Microsoft mail servers.
On a RHL 7.0 system, please make sure you update glibc to the errata
version as that fixes many problems. I'd also recommend upating to RHL 7.1
for a mail server system.
The sendmail documentation also refers to some fixpacks you need to
apply to that other operating system, so that this other operating system
works correctly. AFAIK sendmail should be ok.
