Okay folks, sorry if it's a FAQ, but this has been bugging me quite
What's up with this:
16:28:36 - 113 #...; /usr/lib/sendmail -v jmason
Now, shouldn't a command-line invocation of /usr/lib/sendmail try toQuote:>Trying 184.108.40.206... connected.
>220 class.iona.ie Sendmail 5.0/SMI-SVR4 ready at Wed, 3 Nov 93 16:28:38 GMT
>553 class.iona.ie host name configuration error
>Trying 220.127.116.11... connected.
>[.... ad infinitum ]
deliver locally without trying to connect to its OWN port 25, or at
least try and connect to the real mailhost, or even to class.iona.ie's
MX-record host? Why is it so brain-damaged??! :(
I've applied the 101077-03 jumbo sendmail patch, and the same thing
happens with both main.cf and subsidiary.cf. I'm stumped. The -bt 3,0
ruleset testing works grand, and the rewriting is valid... mail from
other hosts works grand too. It's only local mail-sending that's stuck.
