Sendmail

I recently found that I am on the orbs open mail relay bad list. I am running HPunix 10.2.
What command or syntax can I use to let me know what version of sendmail I am running? How can you tell if you have an "open relay"

Re: Sendmail

Look in /var/adm/syslog/mail.log.

Search for 'starting daemon' this entry tells you about the version.

You could also do 'telnet smtp'

Re: Sendmail

To get the version do

telnet hostname 25

this will return the version.

Re: Sendmail

The DZ line in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf will show what version of the configuration file you are using.

Another method which also provides other useful troubleshooting information is

sendmail -d0.1
The output should look like:
Version 8.8.6 (PHNE_14041)
Compiled with: LOG MATCHGECOS MIME7TO8 MIME8TO7 NAMED_BIND NDBM NETINET
NETUNIX NEWDB NIS QUEUE SCANF SMTP USERDB XDEBUG

============ SYSTEM IDENTITY (after readcf) ============
(short domain name) $w = host
(canonical domain name) $j = $w.domain.com
(subdomain name) $m = domain.com
(node name) $k = host
========================================================
