what are the possible sendmail syslog delivery states?



  • 1. Sendmail and smtp auth
    Hello, I'm trying to configure sendmail (on a linux debian box). To avoid spamming relay on my server, I only authorize the relay of my own domain. Some users have dynamic IP addresses. I'm sure that sendmail can be configured as a secure smtp with authorization. Thus, I try to configure a relay that only relaies mails from authorized users (by unix logins and unix passwords over SSL) without any domain control. I'm reading the complete manual, but I don't found this information. Any idea ? Thanks in advance, JKB PS: I use VERSIONID(`$Id: sendmail.mc, v 8.12.9-5 2003-07-01 23:39:44 cowboy Exp $')

  • 3. Sendmail 8.13.0 problems with sm-client
    I was able to install sendmail fine and it runs fine, how sm-client appears to start, but when you try a stop from the init.d script it fails. I am running on fedorah core 1.0. Any clue what is going on? Logs have errors indicating unable to write to pid file... "Jun 29 11:49:27 mail4 sm-msp-queue[5964]: unable to write pid to /var/spool/clientmqueue/sm-client.pid: file in use by another process"
  • 4. installing 8.13 onto a RH9 pc
    I need help in installing the new beta onto a RH9 pc running 8.12 now. I tried using the rpm's out there but there were dependencies on libc.so.6 and libdb4.2.so . So decided to go for the tar ball. Now I've hit the problem of how to get into the tar. I dl'ed the tar.gz and the tar.gz.sig . GPG 1.2.1 is installed already. Are there instructions anywhere on how to decrypt the tar.gz file? I've been unable to figure it out from the man page for gpg. Thanks.

in /var/log/mail sendmail writes what has been done with the mail
e.g. date host sendmail[pid]: sendmailid: to= XXXX@XXXXX.COM , ctladdr=usr 
(0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30288, 
relay=[host] [host], dsn=version, stat=Sent (sendmailid Message accepted 
for delivery)

i checked the sendmail source code, but i cant find any hint for a list 
of possible sendmail delivery states?

for now i know they can be:
stat=Sent (text from recipient mail server)
stat=Deferred: reason
stat=User unkown

and what does every state mean?
Sent = ok, sent
queued = its in the queue
deferred = ? (i think sendmail tried to send, but maybe remote host is 
down so it couldnt deliver the mail -> deferred??)
user unkown = recipient mail address not found, so no delivery

which other states are available? and where the hack are the states 
defined? i really found nothing in sendmail source, which could help
