  Configuring sendmail on Jaguar
Subject:   submit.cf

I notice that one of the two sendmail processes is using the /etc/mail/submit.cf as its configuration file. But this file doesn't have the DontBlameSendmail option enabled.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to add the define(`confDONT_BLAME_SENDMAIL', `GroupWritableDirPathSafe') option to the /usr/share/sendmail/conf/cf/submit.mc file and rebuild /etc/mail/submit.cf using m4?

Please advise.

BTW, fantastic article and I'm looking forward to reading about SMTP_AUTH. Any chance of you talking about configuring a mail hub to receive mail for multiple domain names?

    I haven't found it necessary to change my submit.cf file at all. My machine regularly sends me email from various command line programs (usually cron) and I haven't needed to tweak it.

    I'm glad that you enjoyed the article. I think we'll have more to come based on all the feedback.
