Re: sendmail error 'rewrite: map @ not found'

be sure you have used the Tru64 delivered sendmail.cf file and have configured sendmail via mailsetup! The given errormessage is typical if edited sendmail.cf by hand or have not configured sendmail properly.

It looks like your config file has something like:

$(@ ... $)

somewhere on the right hand side of a rule. You'll probably also have a line that is something like:

D@filename

This needs to be converted to a K line (with some other stuff added). It could be fixed by using the os delivered sendmail.cf file.
In your case, sendmail checks the destination against the map file which is not properly setup.
