Description Toni Willberg 2002-11-06 05:56:46 EST
* Description of problem:
m4 ignores INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(...) -line of sendmail.mc when using RedHat's
version of sendmail.mc (and it's includes)

* Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

* How reproducible:

* Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /etc/mail/
2: append line 
     INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`spamassassin', `S=local:/var/run/spamass.sock, F=,
   to sendmail.mc
3. m4 sendmail.mc > sendmail.test.cf


* Actual Results:  m4 seems to ignore the appended line.

* Expected Results:  Following lines should be found from sendmail.test.cf:

 O InputMailFilters=spamassassin
 Xspamassassin, S=local:/var/run/spamass.sock, F=, T=C:15m;S:4m;R:4m;E:10m

Additional info:

Tested with:

This might aswell be bug in m4. Who knows. I have no time to debug it further.

If there's something wrong with that INPUT_MAIL_FILTER -line, I will blaim
author of spamass-milter who wrote /usr/src/spamass-milter-0.1.2/README.

Bye :)

milter was not fully supported in that version of sendmail, I'd strongly
suggest to update to 8.12 or newer to use milter support.
