Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6884
6.0 -> 6.1 upgrade creates incorrect /etc/mail/access and breaks relaying
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
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
After upgrade, /etc/mail/access contains the two lines
This is incorrect. /etc/mail/access should contain
after the upgrade.
