Blank configuration for Sendmail 8.9.3 for HP-UX 11.00


Hello all,

I have 'inherited' a number of HP-UX 11.00 servers with Sendmail 8.9.3 on them.
(courtesy of the PHNE_24419 package)

The thing is, the Sendmail config has been ruined on each one of them.
I have managed to grab a copy of a 8.8.6 file, but Sendmail complains about the version of the file.

Can anyone help me get my hands on a 'virginal' copy of sendmail.cf for Sendmail 8.9.3?

Shalom,

If you like human readable, most likely the hpux-10-mail.mc file has options.

http://buildmail.hpux.text has a means (correct filename) for generating sendmail.cf from the macro file.

/me *bows* to Pete

I'm afraid I'm mostly a Linux man, so please forgive me for the silly question.


Steve,
I gave up on Sendmail when they switched to m4, so I think I'll stick with the ancient .cf format. (It took me months to really understand the syntax, they they changed it! I got miffed and switched to, ehm, Postfix)

If only a few changes are to be made in the sendmail.cf file, copy the file and modify it. However, for more extensive customization of sendmail, I prefer to use the m4 approach. With the m4 approach, all customization can controlled by the mc file. The sendmail.cf file then is generated rather than being edited itself.

The HP Response Center does not support the m4 approach but it is straightforward to accomplish if you have the O'Reilly reference books on sendmail.

I have a numer of settings that I want to change (DS, sender sormat, local-delivery-addresses, etc..).

From what I can tell, everything is working fine, now.
