Do a search in sendmail.cf for 'SmtpGreetingMessage'.


Change from ...


O SmtpGreetingMessage=$j Sendmail $v/$Z; $b


to :


O SmtpGreetingMessage=$j $b


then a simple killall -HUP sendmail should fix it. (This works on RedHat 8)



End result when you try to telnet is ...


# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 localhost ESMTP Wed, 11 Jun 2003 10:50:07 +1000
quit
221 2.0.0 localhost closing connection
Connection closed by foreign host.


Cheers.


NB: localhost names changed to protect the inane
