Description mmclure 1999-06-02 01:01:18 UTC
Even if you set up user masquerading, it never happens
because rule 94 never calls rule 93. The fix is to change
lines 134-136 of /usr/lib/linuxconf/mailconf/

#R$+                     $@ $>93 $1
R$* < @ *LOCAL* > $*    $: $1 < @ $j . > $2


R$+                     $@ $>93 $1
R$* < @ *LOCAL* > $*    $: $1 < @ $j . > $2

(i.e. uncomment line 135). I did this change and sendmail
now correctly does user masquerading.

This seems to be the same bug as 2522.

Linuxconf has the ability to setup sendmail "masquerading
rules" to rewrite from addresses.  While I can't read the rules (but then again, who can!?!), my testing
shows that mail sent (w/ elm in my case) from a local
account does not get the from address rewritten.  This was
tested with both username@localhost and username@my.FQDN.

Have used linuxconf to change
Have a LAN with inofficial FQDN an so I need the "Dj"
command in to fake my FQDN due to ISP
requirements.  So I did changes on by hand
because linuxconf did not set any "Dj" command in (which is a different issue, I know).
On next reboot, the systems stucks while
executing /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S99linuxconf !
If you boot in "single" mode and execute S99linuxconf you
see why: S99linuxconf needs manual input because the was changed by hand!

Workaround: have renamed S99linuxconf to orig-S99linuxconf

Jacques, is this fixed in 1.16r1.3?  This seems to stir a faint
memory of discussion on the linuxconf list...

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore.
