Re: Sendmail Error

Hi,
it looks like yoyr sendmail.cf is not at the same level as the sendmail demon.


To check the sendmail demon you can

telnet HOST 25

or

sendmail -bt -d0


you shuold see the same error message.


The check your /etc/mail/sendmail.cf for the line
# Configuration version number
DZ8.9.3

If they differ you can change it manually, then restart sendmail

/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
/sbin/init.d/sendmail start


This should fix.

HTH,
Massimo
