Description daniel.deimert 1999-11-10 18:03:41 UTC
In 6.0 sendmail, /etc/mail/ip_allow is used to control who's
allowed relaying. In 6.1 sendmail, /etc/mail/allow is used.

Upgrade tries to preserve the settings from ip_allow but
fails and generates an incorrect setting, breaking relaying.

Example: Before upgrade, /etc/mail/ip_allow contains two
lines

	192.168.
	10.

After upgrade, /etc/mail/access contains the two lines

	2 RELAY
	2 RELAY

This is incorrect. /etc/mail/access should contain

	192.168	RELAY
	10	RELAY

after the upgrade.
