    Infamous May be Forged in sendmail


    Alright,

    Anyone who has done anything with sendmail extensively knows about the "may be forged" tag that sendmail likes to tag to the headers if the rDNS does not match. My question is: does anyone out there know where that text is being generated from in the configuration files? or is it even in the config files? I would like to change the phrase and/or delete it out of the header modifier in the config file... I can't find any documentation on that subject at all! It's a little project of mine and I would like to know if it's possible...

    -Mike

    Look in the sendmail.mc file. Its location may be dependent on your
    distribution. This is the editable config file. Then the macro processor
    m4 is run to produce the actual config file sendmail.conf

    Ok...So here are the answers for anyone else...

    Make sure that the DNS and rDNS match correctly...

    I.E. example.com is at 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.1 reports that it is example.com

    OR JUST SWITCH TO POSTFIX OR QMAIL!!
