If you're using the sendmail relay hack (successfully) would you be
kind enough to send me your configuration, i.e.
- which version of amavis _exactly_
- which version of sendmail
- permissions of /usr/sbin/sendmail, /var/spool/mqamavis,
/var/spool/mqueue, /var/amavis, /var/virusmails
- _all_ changes to your sendmail config (sendmail.cf), such as Mamavis (or
RunAs, DefaultUser stuff, if used)
- which OS exactly (i.e SuSE Linux 7.0, RedHat 7.0, Sun Solaris 8)
Background: I used the sendmail relay hack in the past successfully on my
SuSE systems with sendmail 8.9.3 and 8.11.x (amavis 0.2.1 and
amavis-perl-10, IIRC), before I switched to sendmail-milter and postfix.
The configuration I used is described in README.sendmail (esp. the example
configuration section). But, well, it's a hack, and a lot of ppl complained
in the past about it ("it simply does not work - I've tried several
configs/permissions"). Unfortunately, my time is simply too limited to dig
into it :-(
Either I/we can manage to improve README.sendmail, so ppl are able to get
it working or I'll remove the sendmail relay hack completly for the next
Thanks a lot for your participation and input!
