Description whit 1999-12-12 04:30:12 UTC
It generates for 8.8.7 which has different anti-spam and
security measures than the sendmail 8.9 series, which results among other
things is the maillog containing "sendmail[3980]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
rewrite: map junk not found", because the use of a 'junk' mapfile was a
hack in 8.8.7 that's handled otherwise in 8.9.x.

You do trust linuxconf enough to allow it generate your /etc/ You
are a fool, man... Either learn all the sendmail magic yourself and forgot about
linuxconf, or switch to some other MTA (qmail or posftfix, for example).

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-06-05 15:49:53 UTC
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore.
