[SLUG] Sendmail DNS quirk solved


For those interested, we finally solved running sendmail without DNS. You
can use define the service switch file eg:
   define(`confSERVICE_SWITCH_FILE',`/etc/service.switch')
which tells sendmail to look in hosts file first.

Red Hat has an nsswitch.conf file, but the format is incompatible with
sendmail.

Cheers
