Description of problem:
I have in /etc/rsyslog.conf:
#### ommail module configuration ####
$template mailSubject,"rsyslog ommail test on %hostname%"
$template mailBody,"RSYSLOG Alert\r\nmsg='%msg%'"
When /etc/hosts looks like:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1 localhost localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
rsyslog is not able to connect to smtp port (be also aware of 740514).
When I remove localhost from ipv6 line, rsyslog works as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure rsyslog to send logs via smtp server on localhost
2. update /etc/hosts file so localhost is assigned both to ipv4 and ipv6 address
3. log a message
mail not sent
