    Enforcing Non-Relaying on Sendmail..


    Hi,
    I understand that relaying by default is disabled on Sendmail 8.9 and up. We currently use the /etc/mail/access file to designate/limit relaying. Seems our server might still be allowing relaying despite designating only authorized ip addresses and domains in the access file. Can anyone provide any other useful methods to enforce non-relaying? Thx.

    /etc/mail/access is the canonical way to do that. If it still allows relaying for everyone, the only reasonable explanation that I can think of would be that you have entered the wrong data or similar.
