The default sendmail.cf file no-longer seems to include the
'domaintable' feature, even though the sendmail package
includes /etc/mail/domaintable.

It seems to have gone missing from the redhat.c4 file
completely for the 6.1 distro.

I can confirm that sendmail-8.9.3-10 (RH6.0) and sendmail-8.9.3-15 (RH6.1) were
both missing the domaintable entry in /etc/sendmail.mc and related section of

I added FEATURE(`domaintable',`hash -o /etc/mail/domaintable') to sendmail.mc
and rebuilt the sendmail.cf.  According to a document I read on sendmail.org,
the default location of the domaintable is /etc/domaintable, so you have to
include the second parameter.

Note that there's a typo in line 3 of the sendmail.mc: thie ->

This is a sysadmin issue. We can not be possibly turning on all the features
sendmail has to offer. The site admin is responsible for configuring the extra

It would be cool toi have a config tool, but until then...

The issue isn't that 'domaintable' is simply missing. I can appreciate that you
can't, and probably shouldn't, turn on every possible feature.

The issue is that it USED TO BE enabled in at least redhat-5.2, and is no-
longer enabled. You will be getting issues with folk that have used domaintable
in redhat-5.2, but when they upgrade to redhat-6.1 (as all good redhatians
should, yes?? ;) something will stop working. That's gonna be a very hairy one
to figure out for those folk. (Not everyone's a sendmail guru ;)
