Quoting Nigel Allen <dna@xxxxxxxxxxx>:
I want to change the /etc/mail/access from a simple "RELAY" to
something that will check for valid addresses for that domain and
reject any BS ones.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
sendmail 8-14-1 on FC6.
I might be missing something, but IIRC you can just list the actual
user@xxxxxxxxxx in the access file and filter for allowed users that way.
Please feel free to ignore me if I'm talking rubbish, it's been quite
a few years since I was that intimate with Sendmail.
Not rubbish at all - I'm afraid it's just not quite that simple.
Here's what we were using - masked for privacy:
To:aaa.com.au "550 User unknown"
This resulted in everything for aaa.com.au being bounced "We do not relay".
I'm going to try a few different solutions after hours - naturally I
want to limit the disturbance of testing during working hours.
