But to answer your question, check out
<http://maps.vix.com/tsi/ar-fix.html#sendmail_8> and
<http://www.informatik.uni-kiel.de/%7Eca/email/check.html#check_rcpt>.
<http://www.sendmail.org/> has some other links for fighting spam with
sendmail which may be of interest to you.

Follow-ups on this topic should be probably posted to the comp.mail.sendmail
newsgroup.

Later,

Re: Not relaying spam?

You can add rules to your sendmail.cf that will stop relaying of mail.  The 
rules are listed under the www.sendmail.org page.

Help With SmartMail Mailing list.

I have several mailing lists set up with Smartmail.  I cannot for the
life of me get the X-Commands to work.  I have the rc.init  and
rc.custom set up for a password, and send commands with the X-Command in
the subject line, and also tryed in the address lines, but only get the
message echo'd back to the maintainer address.

Is there a permissions setting that is not included somewhere?  Or what
am I doing wrong.  My procmail forwarding works great, so does the
autoresponders.

You'd probably be better off asking in Smartmail <at> Informatik.RWTH-Aachen.DE

Although SmartList uses procmail, it is specialized enough to have its own list.

It's SmartList, not Smartmail.  And questions about it should be sent to
the smartlist mailing list (smartlist <at> informatik.rwth-aachen.de), so
I've directed replies there (and used a more descriptive subject).

Anyway, X-Command is a header by itself.  It doesn't go in the Subject:
header, and definitely not in the To: header.  With SmartList 3.11pre7
it may also be the first line of the body like:

X-Command: maintainer <at> list.server password command

This is a sendmail question, nothing to do with procmail. But since
you ask, I'd like to recomend the following "plug-n-play"
access & relay-control package for sendmail 8.8 which I think is
pretty cool. I include the README file below so you can check it out.

Regards
Gjermund Sørseth

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This package adds two independent features to sendmail, access control
and relay control. They will be described here simultaneously, but you
can elect to include support for only one of them (either one) on
your mail server. Access control lets you deny access to the server
based on the senders envelope address or his IP address. Relay control
lets you decide who gets to relay email through your server.

    The package was designed with the needs of large ISP's in mind, but
is simple enough for anyone to use.

    I will assume you are using the common method of generating a
sendmail.cf file from a .mc master file using the m4 macros, but you can

Last message store


I would like to do the following.  In Pine, I can access Pine e-mail
message.  Outside Pine, I cannot access Pine e-mail messages.

I don't like that. I guess I can't change this.  But I think I would be
able to easily access the last message put in a folder.  I'd like to do
this.  Simply copy a message to a file.  When a message comes in, it would
be stored in file 'lastmsg'.

removed.
