using include with sendmail 8.9.3

I am trying to use a simple distribution list using the include statement in the /etc/mail/aliases file.

dist-list: :include:/users/masterlist

I either get "OpenMail delivery agent not configured" or "X.400 delivery agent not configured"

Any ideas?

Shalom,

Build the distrubution list into the aliases file.

Also, make sure sendmail functions properly first with the mailx command or a simple sendmail test.

sendmail -v -d8.99 -d38.99 someone@net.com

type some text

.


You will get full diagnostics and know if there is a bigger problem.

Re: using include with sendmail 8.9.3

All seemed to work fine. I did get the following output from the suggested command.

db_map_lookup(Alias0, @)
implicit:Alias0 /etc/mail/aliases: valid
map_init(dbm:access, /etc/mail/access, 1)
wrong pass (pass = 1, rebuildable = 0)
map_init(host:host, NULL, 1)
wrong pass (pass = 1, rebuildable = 0)
map_init(switch:aliases, aliases, 1)
wrong pass (pass = 1, rebuildable = 0)
map_init(dequote:dequote, NULL, 1)
wrong pass (pass = 1, rebuildable = 0)
map_init(nis:aliases.nis, mail.aliases, 1)
wrong pass (pass = 1, rebuildable = 0)
map_init(host:resolve, NULL, 1)
wrong pass (pass = 1, rebuildable = 0)

If the alias does not have a space between the colons it works on the local host but does not push out to the other servers.

dist-list::include:/users/masterlist

Any ideas?
