#31 turn off masquerading amavis-perl sendma


I have sendmail running with amavis-perl and all was
well until I wanted to host some other domains email
accounts. I have the domain foo.com as my primary
domain on the server. I am virtual hosting vfoo.com. I
want emails that go out using vfoo.com to have
user@vfoo.com and not foo.com. If I take out these
hacks to the sendmail.cf that I originally put in to
get amavis-perl working...the outgoing mail will have
the proper domain attached to the from:

b) change the queue directory, i.e. to
O QueueDirectory=/var/spool/mqamavis

c) change the status file, i.e. to
O StatusFile=/var/log/amavis.st
d) change rule set 0 to
R$* $: $>Parse0 $1 initial parsing
R<@> $#local $: <@> special case error msgs
R$* $: $>98 $1 handle local hacks
R$* $#amavis $:$1
#R$* $: $>Parse1 $1 final parsing

Be carefull of tabs, so here's the code again, instead
of [tab] press
the tab key :-)

R$*[tab][tab]$: $>Parse0 $1[tab][tab]initial parsing
R<@>[tab][tab]$#local $: <@>[tab][tab]special case
error msgs
R$*[tab][tab]$: $>98 $1[tab][tab]handle local hacks
R$*[tab][tab]$#amavis $:$1
#R$*[tab][tab]$: $>Parse1 $1[tab][tab]final parsing

Add the new mailer defintion:
Mamavis, P=/usr/sbin/amavis, F=mlsACDFMS5:/|@qhP, S=0,
A=amavis $f $u

Step 3: do a ./configure --enable-relay --enable-
make and make install (you may add some more flags to

Users will be sending emails from neomail. I have a
separate neomail setup for each domain. This works if
I take the amavis info out of the sendmail.cf and put
it back to the way it was.

Please help!!

    The sendmail relay hack is - as the name already implies -
    just a hack. I'd suggest to use sendmails milter interface
