correct way - sendmail ver

What would be the correct way of finding sendmail version?

1. telnet localhost 25 (Machine A)

ESMTP Sendmail 8.9.3 (PHNE_29773)/8.9.3; Thu, 4 Sep 2008 11:16:47 -0400 (EDT)

2 telnet localhost 25 (Machine B)

HP Sendmail (1.40.112.8/16.2) ready at Thu, 4 Sep 2008 09:15:42 -0600

this is what i have 2 machines. also a 3rd question. how will i find out if i do not have the sendmail daemon running? (in which case telnet localhost 25 will not work)?

please help

Thanks

Shalom,

You have pretty much found the info.

swlist -l product | grep -i sendmail

Is the official way to get the info.

Re: correct way - sendmail ver

I prefer:

echo \$Z | /usr/sbin/sendmail -bt -d0
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"
