list and its one way usage only



  • 1. smrsh
    I'm trying to get smrsh to work with a standard script. I have the following setup but I keep getting an error message when an email arrives. I think it's probably something simply but I haven't had to do this installation in years and I've forgotten some of the details. Any ideas? The error is: smrsh: "" not available for sendmail programs (stat failed) 554 5.0.0 Service unavailable I have the /etc/smrsh folder setup with a symbolic link pointing to the Perl script. drwxr-xr-x 2 root mail 4096 Feb 17 14:16 smrsh lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28 Feb 17 14:16 smrsh/ -> /var/www/cgi-bin/ My file has the following: Mprog, P=/usr/sbin/smrsh, F=lsDFMoqeu9, S=EnvFromL/HdrFromL, R=EnvToL/HdrToL, D=$z:/, T=X-Unix/X-Unix/X-Unix, A=smrsh -c $u Bill
  • 2. sendmail errors that I cannot find documented
    I would like to ask if someone can either point me to some error documentation or help me correct the following problem. I have looked at the sendmail website. Even though sendmail starts without errors showing upon boot, I am not able to receive my emails although I can see them in the /var/spool/mqueue using other means. One of the queued messages show: Malias database unavailable. I have just upgraded my linux version and am now receiving the following message from sendmail -bt: fatal: bad numerical configuration: debut_peer_level = 2? followed by some path information I have re-checked my sendmail settings, host settings, and other information but I can't seem to locate the problem.

  • 4. check_rcpt script works but
    I know I am missing something but would like to prevent spammers from telnetting to prot 25 and using my mailserver. Check_rcpt almost does that but I find it a bit aggressive in that mailing lists are blocked too and using relay_to is not a solution. I have tried to fathom what the script does but it is beyond me. So what am I missing in configuring this so that legitimate emails coming in can be handled while a telnet session is stopped. TIA for any hints and tips. I would have looked in my O'Reilley but it is in a box waiting to be unpacked and I do not know which box. :-(

list and its one way usage only

There is a need sometimes to have a huge list of addresses for temporary use 
(for example a conference preliminary). Such a list can be defined with 
using an include statement in the aliases file. It's OK so far but I don't 
know how to accomplish so that this correspondig address will be usable from 
our site only. It should be certain that any reply (with its largely private 
questions) is never sent to the list.
Thanks in advance for any hint.
