I can't replicate this on a stock BlueOnyx. Our /etc/mail/sendmail.cf and
sendmail.mc use /etc/mail/local-host-names - as they should.
Also /etc/mail/local-host-names is updated by a handler whenever a site is
added, modified or removed. It then adds, changes or removes the hostname of
the site from /etc/mail/local-host-names
Please run the following command on your server and report back your findings:
"rpm -qa|grep sendmail"
The output should look like this:
# rpm -qa|grep sendmail
If you're running a different version of Sendmail (like one grabbed from
RPMforge and therelike), then this could explain the problems.
A copy of the "stock" BlueOnyx sendmail.mc can be found here:
Please compare it with your /etc/mail/sendmail.mc to see if there are any
This can be done quickly with this command:
diff /etc/mail/sendmail.mc /usr/sausalito/configs/sendmail/sendmail.mc
If there are no differences, it will return to the prompt without giving any
output. Otherwise it'll show which lines are different.
With best regards
