Description Pete Zaitcev 2007-04-17 18:50:58 UTC
Description of problem:

Mail bounces becasue localdomain is a bad domain:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
    (reason: 553 5.5.4 <root@localhost.localdomain>... Real domain name required
for sender address)
    (expanded from: root)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to []:
>>> MAIL From:<root@localhost.localdomain> SIZE=20837
<<< 553 5.5.4 <root@localhost.localdomain>... Real domain name required for
sender address
501 5.6.0 Data format error

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

100% for the given configuration

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update sendmail
Actual results:

Mail from cron tasks breaks.

Expected results:

Mail delivered to sysadmin.

Additional info:

The error is trivial to fix by editing /etc/, but the point
is, this should not happen in configs where everything is 100% stock.

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2007-04-25 11:27:17 UTC
Could it be that there is no localhost.localdomain entry in /etc/hosts?

Comment 2 Pete Zaitcev 2007-04-25 16:53:07 UTC
1. It's there:

[zaitcev@niphredil ~]$ grep localhost /etc/hosts       localhost.localdomain localhost niphredil.zaitcev.lan
::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
[zaitcev@niphredil ~]$ 

2. This is a regression. Worked before update, stopped after update,
without changes to the /etc/hosts.

Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2007-08-01 14:09:37 UTC
I can not reproduce the problem here at all. It is working as expected.
Can you please verify if this is still happening for you with the original

Comment 4 Pete Zaitcev 2007-08-01 19:36:04 UTC
Looks like it's not happening anymore, although on the other hand I stopped
getting mails from logwatch altogether some time ago.
