Sendmail, stat=Deferred: Connection Refused #2

well I got it working
but not sure why
the iMac came with a default /etc/mail/submit.cf file
i don't know what that is for
but actually I dont have that file on my ibook
but I did see the other day on the web to link that file to sendmail.cf
ln -s /etc/mail/sendmail.cf /etc/mail/submit.cf
i renamed the old submit.cf to submit.cf.old
and now I can deliver mail with or with sendmail running in -bd mode

anyone know what submit.cf is for?

Do NOT do that...

Are you running 8.12? It seems you got some settings wrong.

> anyone know what submit.cf is for?

It's for the Mail Submission Program. Download 8.12.10 and
read sendmail/SECURITY. Then install the submit.cf file that
comes with the distribution.

Sendmail, stat=Deferred: Connection Refused
Hi I have sendmail running on my iBook just fine. I do not have it running as a server, I just use it to send out mail from crons and scripts .... where it just creates an instance of sendmail to send the message and stops again. I am trying to setup the same thing on my iMac and I have some success but not complete. When I do not have sendmail running as a server on the iMac and I try to send a message I get the error ..... Oct 31 08:17:19 iMac sendmail[383]:... proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=localhost [127.0.0.1] blah blah message IDs etc relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1] When I start up sendmail with /usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -q1h and send a message I get Oct 31 08:20:19 iMac sendmail[383]:... proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=localhost [127.0.0.1] blah blah message IDs etc relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (h9V3tp7Y000529 Message accepted for delivery) The curious thing here is that sendmail is using the 127.0.0.1 IP address. It's address is 192.168.100.5. The iBook and iMac are behind a linksys router with 192.168.100.x addresses. On my iBook the log shows: proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=ibook [192.168.100.3] so here sendmail is using 'ibook" which is it's hostname and it's 192 address. No mention of 127.0.0.1 at all. On my iMac the /etc/hosts file is the same as the ibook 127.0.0.1 localhost 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost ::1 localhost 192.168.100.5 ...

Sendmail refusing connections #2
I am Very new to sendmail, so I don't even know what type of information would be helpful for me to post. I am using sendmail 8.13.6, that comes bundled with Sophos PureMessage for Unix. We have seen a couple of network outages recently, and my sendmail server has had some issues during this time. This box serves as both my mail gateway and my outgoing smtp server for all clients (Eudora, Thunderbird, and Sun's Webmail) on my network. When the network is down, it starts refusing local client connections, but not from Sun's Messenging server. I am always able to send outgoing messages from it. I would think that the load would decrease on this box, when outside mail, and spammers are unable to hit it. tknabe@gmail.com wrote: > I am Very new to sendmail, so I don't even know what type of > information would be helpful for me to post. > > I am using sendmail 8.13.6, that comes bundled with Sophos PureMessage > for Unix. > > We have seen a couple of network outages recently, and my sendmail > server has had some issues during this time.

sendmail refusing connections
Hello All I recently installed sendmail with wrappers support (thankyou for your help) on a host within our network, my reasoning was that Host A would only except mail from our users and our mail relay Host B. I see in Host B's log files that Host A is sometimes refusing connections from our members as well as from Host B with the message.. "Deferred: Connection timed out with ...." I have set the RefuseLA option as well as MaxDaemonChildren to very high numbers with no result, it is still refusing connections. I really don't want Host A to ever refuse a connection from it's own hosts. I also set the ConnectionRateThrottle just for a laff but it didnt make a difference. How can I set it up so that Host will always except connections.

Sendmail refuses to send mail
Hi, only recently have I started using sendmail (8.11) on a RedHat 7.1 linux machine. Up till now I've only been able to receive e-mail (both local and remote). Sending e-mail to a valid e-mail address stops with a dsn 4.0.0 and "no route to host", even though I can ping the domain in the e-mail address. Traceroute however is unable to come up with an answer. What do I do wrong? Any place I can find a clear description of what is happening?

Start by posting some log entries from an email that is bouncing. I would also be tempted to think about sniffing the SMTP traffic. However seeing as how the message is being rejected with a 4xx series code, it should still be in a mail queue on your system (presuming that it is the system your server is passing the message off to th...

Sending mail without sendmail or highly secure sendmail
Hello all, I am setting up a very secure Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server version 4 update 6 server. My sendmail version is 8.13.1. My mail server is a Windows 2003 Server with Exchange 2003 with its patches. They are both on the same subnet. DNS is on and it will resolve the mail server's name and IP. SSH, SCP, SFTP, and such tools are the only networkable protocols on. NFS if off, MOUNTD is off, PORTMAP is off, and such. Until just recently sendmail was off on the RHEL server as part of the hardening procedure. However part of the auditing requirements is for a mail message to go out to some admin if certain events occur such as "disk is full," "a panic occurred," "the system rebooted" etc. So I will perhaps cut sendmail on and mitigate the risk as best as possible. So, this sounds dumb, but can you send mail without sendmail. I think perhaps no, but I thought I'd ask anyway. Secondly does anyone have a harden .mc file from which they could share what they did? Of course you can fudge in phoney IP and names to protect your secured environment. Advice or insight do any of you have on securing sendmail is appreciated? I want to avoid such things as promiscuous relays, unqualified senders, etc etc. But if it must be ... it must be. :) Thanks George <george.e.sullivan@saic.com> wrote: > I am setting up a very secure Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server > version 4 update 6 server.

Sendmail Connection Refused: Resolved
Turns out there was a very simple solution. Sendmail wasn't listening to any other network interfaces due to how it was being launched, rather than a firewall or configuration problem. The solution evaded me because SuSE doesn't document their Sendmail implementation very well, but it's obvious from SuSE's init script for Sendmail. if test "$SMTPD_LISTEN_REMOTE" != "yes"; then SENDMAIL_ARGS="-O DaemonPortOptions=Addr=127.0.0.1 $SENDMAIL_ARGS" where $SENDMAIL_ARGS is set in a file /etc/sysconfig/mail Thanks for all the help!

Sendmail claiming connection refused
Hello there! I have the following setup: Server 1 is running sendmail and is setup as the standard mx using means of DNS. server 2 is also running sendmail and is configured as a backup mx for domains hosted on server 1 (mx records set properly). Basically, server 2 is supposed to accept mail for serveral domains during times when server 1 is not reachable for email. In order to achieve that, I have added those domains to /etc/relay-domains on server 2. In addition to that I have added those domains to /etc/mailertable as follows: domain.com smtp:server1.domain.com I assume this is the proper format for mailertable. Of course I have built the map file accordingly (makemap hash mailertable.db < mailertable). Now, in order to check the setup, I shut down sendmail on server 1 so that server 2's sendmail can show it works. And it does in fact accept mail and enqueue it perfectly. So I start up sendmail on server 1 again and flush the mailqueue of server 2 manually, but all I get is messages stating that server 1 has refused the connection. But, when connecting via telnet to port 25 of server 1, it is perfectly reachable and handles mail as it should. The really strange thing, however, is that after quite a while (30 minutes or more) the automatic queue flush on server 2 succeeds in forwarding the mail to server 1. Can anyone explain this to me or give me some hint, please? Any help is greatly appreciated! Yours, Christian "Christian Glockner" <...

Sendmail /etc/mail/access #2
Hi all, sorry for my english, I am from Spain, I hope you understand me, thanks. I have a little but important error in my RH9 with sendmail 8.12.8 and MailScanner, we use this server to filter virus in gateway, this is the configuration : To received mail. World - Internet - FW - MailScanner - Corporate Email Server "Users Mail Boxes" To send mail. Internal Users - Corporate Proxy Server - MailScanner - Corporate Email Server - Internet - World. External Users - FW - MailScanner - Corporate Email Server - Internet - World. The problem are that the internal users arrive with the Proxy IP address and the MailScanner allow relay it, but the external users begin with their IP "dinamic IP" and all days I have to change /etc/mail/access to allow relay for then. I try to set the email addresses of the external users and the domain name of my organization in /etc/mail/access, in /etc/mail/relay-domains the domain name of my organization, but they can not send email through MailScanner. Previously, all users sent email through the corporate email server because in it we have run POPBeforeSMTP and they log in with the pop session. Now the pop server it is the relay of the MailScanner server only and the MailScanner server its SMTP server only. Now we can not use SMTP authenticated. Thanks in advance, best regards. ...

sendmail waits 2 mintues when connecting
hi.. i have RH 7.3 on my laptop the laptop is connected to a docking station which has a network card on it(eth1), usually i use this one but a times i may need to use the latop in the office thus making me use the onboard card (eth0) so i activate both on startup but will not be connected. since i didn't feel like waiting for a while min for the dhcp client to respond i added a -t 10 paramter to network service script. problem is one of the eth is not connected and is activated this somehow screws sendmail making me wait 2 mintues what it's starts up. anyway i make it shorter? since there are no hardware profiles that i know of in rh (like in windows) i cannot tell liux to automatically detect if it's in a docking station thus activating only the approriate card.

HTML mail using sendmail #2
I am trying to use sendmail to send an HTML email. Is there something special in the header to let the email client know that it is an html file?

too many sendmail 8.12.11 sendmail and mail.local processes
I noticed over 7000 sendmail and mail.local processes that eventually exhausted the system's swap space. The system is a Solaris 8 box running sendmail 8.12.11. Also, sendmail.cf has MaxDaemonChildren=500 set. The problem occurred after the system received over 60,000 large email due to a misbehaved application. 1. Why would there be more than 500 sendmail processes? I noticed the parent process for most of the sendmail processes is 1 and mail.local were spawned by sendmail, of course. I have the default MaxQueueChildren value which is unlimited. I noted over 7,000 of these messages in syslog during the time of the incident; Jun 12 09:02:04 peace sendmail-mta[22621]: j5CD04jr022619: timeout waiting for i nput from local during Draining Input Jun 12 09:03:03 peace sendmail-mta[23982]: j5CD13Ef023979: timeout waiting for i nput from local during Draining Input Jun 12 09:04:36 peace sendmail-mta[26086]: j5CD2aaO026076: timeout waiting for i nput from local during Draining Input Jun 12 09:05:38 peace sendmail-mta[27455]: j5CD3bKd027452: timeout waiting for i nput from local during Draining Input Jun 12 09:06:01 peace sendmail-mta[27939]: j5CD411x027931: timeout waiting for i nput from local during Draining Input Jun 12 09:06:16 peace sendmail-mta[28248]: j5CD4GmD028243: timeout waiting for i nput from local during Draining Input F S UID PID PPID C PRI NI ADDR SZ WCHAN STIME TTY TIME CMD 8 S root 8888 1 0 49 20 69174...

problem sendmail sendmail-8.13.8 , aliases and LDAP #2
Hi guys , Im trying to connect my sendmail to my LDAP. In fact in my ldap i the following field mailLocalAddress with the e- mail of the employee ( john.dupont@mycompanie.com ) le in an other field i have rfc822MailMember which is jdupont@server1.mycompanie.com (where jdupont is the account of my employee for the server1). Now I d like to set up a sendmail server that can translate the e-mail to the rfc822MailMember address.

unable to forward mail from 1 sendmail server to another sendmail server
Hi, i have a setup like this: box A ---> box B ---> sends to the world. sendmail, solaris 9. what is happening is as follows: Application on box A generates mail (for the users, who can be from anywhere) forwards it to box B which sends it out. The box A is forwarding mail to box B, only for the users of the domain, ie if there is a user is having a gmail id the mail is NOT forwarded from box A ----> box B. If i do a nslookup on gmail on box A it resolves properly.

2 sendmails and 2 domains
Hi, I have an error when i sent a mail on an internal domain. And i don't find a solution. 553 5.1.8 <root@duras.titi>... Domain of sender address +root@duras.titi does not exist Here is my network : Serveur smtp.ub.fr <---> ufr.ub.fr (eth0) <---> (eth1) kund.titi <---> duras.titi The server sendmail smtp.ub.fr is not managed by me. The server sendmail ufr.ub.fr and smtp.kund.titi is the same but one is for outside and the second internal domain name(kund.titi). It's a relay. The server sendmail duras.titi is used to send mail logs to a user known by smtp.ub.fr titi is an internal domain I succeed in sending mails from ufr.ub.fr to smtp.ub.fr and from kund.titi to duras.titi I don't succeed in sending mail from duras.titi to kund.titi I think that a mail sent from duras.titi to kund.titi is also receive by smtp.ub.fr. Or smtp.ub.fr don't know titi domain. Kund.titi should change root@duras.titi to root@ufr.ub.fr I have made a lot of tries. I think there is a lot of incoherences but i give you presents parameters First UFR.UB.FR **************************** ufr.ub.fr sendmail.mc **************************** define(`_USE_ETC_MAIL_')dnl include(`/usr/share/sendmail/cf/m4/cf.m4')dnl VERSIONID(`$Id: sendmail.mc, v 8.13.8-3 2006-12-08 20:21:10 cowboy Exp $') OSTYPE(`debian')dnl DOMAIN(`debian-mta')dnl define(`confDOMAIN_NAME', `ufr.ub.fr')dnl define(`SMART_HOST',`smtp.ub.fr')d...

New Sendmail server refuses remote connections
Hi all, Just built a new debian server and installed sendmail 8.13. I tried installing 8.14 but it had hash support problems and the sendmail FAQ didn't help, So I just apt-get install sendmail and it got 8.13 for me. Anyways, 8.13 is running and it accepts telnet on the localhost but refuses telnet connects from outside. Currently no firewalls are running and hosts.allow has sendmail:all in it. Anyone got any clues as to why its refusing remote connects ? -- Arcturus Arcturus wrote: > Anyways, 8.13 is running and it accepts telnet on the localhost but refuses > telnet connects from outside. This for sendmail is nowadays by default configured to listen only on 127.0.0.1 for incoming connections. > Currently no firewalls are running and hosts.allow has sendmail:all in it. This has nothing to do what network sendmail listens to, you need to modify your sendmail.mc, you will find a line something similar to DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl either remove it or add dnl first that that line dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl Save and process it with m4 (you may have a Makefile which does this for you if you type 'make' in the directory) to generate a new sendmail.mc, restart service and you should have a sendmail listening on all networks. -- //Aho > either remove it or add dnl first that that line > > dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')...
