sending e-mail to oneself (w/ sendmail 8.13.8+Sun/8.13.8)

Hello everyone,

I hate to ask a basic question. But I already spent two weeks.
I think I have suffered enough to post a question.

I have been using Solaris 9 (SPARC) for years.
My sendmail.mc with older sendmail worked okay for years.

Now I updated my machine to Solaris 10, which comes with a newer
version of sendmail (8.13.8).
I tried my old sendmail.mc (with some tweaks) but it didn't work.
So, I reverted the changes I made, one by one.
Finally, I used the original sendmail.mc that comes with Solaris 10.
It still didn't work.

The problem I'm having is that I cannot send e-mails to myself.
(Mail client == Mail host)
I tried:
# /usr/lib/sendmail -v myself </dev/null

It hangs. The mail is stored in a spool because sendmail failed to
deliver.
I can see it by using 'mailq' command.
Eventually the e-mail is forwarded to 'root' as an undeliverable e-
mail (from MAIL-DAEMON).

553 5.3.5 mailhost.my_domain.com config error: mail loops back to me
(MX problem?)554 5.3.5 Local configuration error

As you my suspect, I can send an e-mail to somebody else (local).

//

My question is:
What is the correct sequence should occur when sending e-mail to
oneself?
How can I debug this problem? (After e-amil is submitted to a mail
spool)

//

The newer version of sendmail now uses 'submit.cf'. I'm suspecting
that sendmail puts e-mails into a spool even the e-mail doesn't need
any relaying.

As my understanding of sendmail is very shallow, I'm sure I've
overlooked something very fundamental.

Thank you for your attention.

Best regards,
Aki Niimura

Which Solaris 10? Which platform?
So far there have been 4 official Solaris 10 updates since GA
and a few hardware updates as well
And every kernel patch tends to over-write the basic sendmail.cf
supplied.
At some point during this time the default config was changed to
"local"
i.e. listening on localhost port 25

Seems to work for me...

This is a sendmail FAQ. Look it up. Identify whats causing this and
fix it : >

No I dont follow you here.

Turn on debugging. Read man sendmail and look for LogLevel

See above: 127.0.0.1

Not quite enough info above for me to guess whats wrong but the
loops back to me has to be fixed.

clustered sendmail 8.13.8 on Solaris 9
Hi there ! I'm having some strange issue with the following setup: - sendmail is running as a resource group in a Solaris 9 cluster - hence, /etc/mail is a symbolic link to the shared config - this works flawlessly as long as the link points to a VxVM group - after migrating the files to a NFS share, the exact same setup fails, complaining about world writable /etc/mail/local-host-names /usr/lib/mail/sh/check-permissions is happy. As the VxVM disk group is treated as a local disk whereas NFS is "remote", I suppose the combination of symbolic link (looking like world writable) and "remote" file system is the culprit. I tried to fix this with "Fw-o" in sendmail.cf, with the result that sendmail starts withoout error but ignores the contents of the file.

Sendmail 8.13.8 all of the sudden hangs upon connect.
My sendmail installation had been running just fine until recently. It seems that upon connecting to my mail servers port 25 it hangs for about 20 seconds before connecting. This happens no matter if i'm on a linux box, windows box, mac, localhost or a remote host. I thought maybe it was an IDENT issue so i set the ident timeout to 1s but it was still giving the issue so I went ahead and disabled IDENT in sendmail using ''OrIdent=0'', yet the issue still occurs. CPU and/or memory shouldn't be an issue, theres plenty of power on this server. Here is an strace of sendmail during the hang period: gettimeofday({1169243552, 401069}, NULL) = 0 poll([{fd=5, events=POLLIN}], 1, 4722) = 0 gettimeofday({1169243557, 139652}, NULL) = 0 poll([{fd=5, events=POLLOUT, revents=POLLOUT}], 1, 0) = 1 send(5, "\231b\1\0\0\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\00281\003200\003182\003198\6"..., 48, 0) = 48 poll([{fd=5, events=POLLIN}], 1, 5000) = 0 gettimeofday({1169243562, 150157}, NULL) = 0 poll([{fd=5, events=POLLOUT, revents=POLLOUT}], 1, 0) = 1 send(5, "\231b\1\0\0\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\00281\003200\003182\003198\6"..., 48, 0) = 48 poll([{fd=5, events=POLLIN}], 1, 5000) = 0 gettimeofday({1169243567, 160744}, NULL) = 0 poll([{fd=5, events=POLLOUT, revents=POLLOUT}], 1, 0) = 1 Any help would be greatly appreciated, please let me know if additional information is needed.

sendmail 8.13.8, milter and the "-bs" option
I have a problem with sendmail 8.13.8 when I run it with the "-bs" option (reading from stdin and writing to stdout) and when sendmail is configured to use a milter filter. Here is what I see: With sendmail 8.13.7, everything works normally: root@calvi sbin # sendmail -bs -Am 220 calvi.corp.cloudmark.com ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.7/8.13.7; Thu, 12 Oct 2006 15:59:59 -0700 With sendmail 8.13.8, it fails to start: root@calvi sbin # sendmail -bs -Am srvrsmtp.c:855: SM_ASSERT(q != NULL) failed Aborted The problem seems to come from a patch made in srvrsmtp.c. Those 2 lines were inserted at line 854 just before the call to milter_connect: q = macvalue(macid("{client_name}"), e); SM_ASSERT(q != NULL); I guess what happens is that the 8.13.8 patch checks the connect hostname before accepting a connection. When running sendmail with IOs fron stdin/stdout, no hostname is provided, the client_name is not defined and the SM_ASSERT consequently fails. Can someone confirm this is correct? It seems to me this is a sendmail bug. How to make "sendmail -bs" work on sendmail 8.13.7 with a milter filter? Any workaround allowing to specify the hostname in that configuration?

Sendmail problems after upgrade from 8.11.1 -> 8.13.3
Hi everyone I have upgrade our sendmail from version 8.11.1 to 8.13.3. After that I am facing problems with some incoming mails. We are using special mailer called Mail Gateway (mgw). It should get all incoming mails addressed like this: <what_ever_number_token@mgw.mydomain.com> (for example the address can be: 12345@mgw.myhost.com) should be routed to port 1234 from where mgw gets the mail. My configuration works just fine with old 8.11.1 but with the 8.13.3 I always get "sender unknown" error when trying to send mail to this mailer from another server where sendmail is running. However, if I send mail from localhost, it works ok and mail is forwarded to correct mailer. In sendmail.cf I have as following settings for the mailer, here is shown only mgw related parts of the config: ------clip------------------------ ################################################################### ### Ruleset 98 -- local part of ruleset zero (can be null) ### ################################################################### SParseLocal=98 # This map matches local-parts of RFC2822 addresses conforming to numeric addresses # accepted by Mail Gateway Receiver Kmgw_address regex -m -a/TYPE=MGW ^\+*[0-9]+$ R$+ <@ mgw. $=w .> $@ $(mgw_address $1 $) @ $2 R$+ <@ mgw. $=w > $@ $(mgw_address $1 $) @ $2 R$+ /type=mgw<@ $=w .> $#mgw$@$R1200$:$1 @mgw.$2 R$+ /type=mgw<@ $=w > $#mgw$@$R1200$:$1 @mgw.$2 ###############################...

So, although we have O DontPruneRoutes=True being set which says sendmail to not to prune source routes, but from my knowledge it doesn't impacts the source routes being intended. From the further analysis on this, I found that mailertable feature which is a way forward is the right replacement for this source routing address. But, could you please let me know if this DontPruneRoutes option is deprecated as we have mailertable ahead .Or if not, am I missing something...

Getting Domainkeys, dkim, and SMTP-AUTH/TLS to play nicely together in sendmail 8.13.8
A while back I struggled to get Domainkeys and DKIM to work properly on my little home server. While I'm sure they weren't necessary in a strict sense, it not only enabled me to learn about the technology but allowed for more of a verification of the email coming from my server. And so this week I figured: "Hey, this has been working without a problem for a while; it must be time to screw with something else." Hence my effort to enable SMTP submissions over port 587. At the very least, with some ISPs blocking traffic to port 25, this seemed to be a good idea (as well as providing a better method for sending email using my server from outside my home LAN). I've read a number of write-ups of SMTP AUTH, including the information at sendmail.org. I've run into a snag, however, with the .pem certificate that is used for the DK stuff. The conventional wisdom seems to be to run domainkeys/dkim as a user other than root, and a .pem certificate is required. Therefore, to get this to run properly, the permissions on the certificate need to me 600 or 400, owned by this user. All well and good so far, except that STARTTLS doesn't like this: STARTTLS=server: file /var/db/domainkeys/mail.key.pem unsafe: permission denied When I telnet to the server, port 587, and issue an EHLO, I see neither AUTH nor TLS in the response.
