sendmail, denied users and rbl
 
I have a problem. I am using the dnsbl feature in sendmail (8.12.10). I have a contact that cannot email us and it is because of the fact that their isp (earthlink) has IPs that are blacklisted. I need a way to bypass the rbl check to let in specific users.

I have added
FEATURE(`delay_checks')dnl
to the sendmail.mc file and I put
From:joe.blow@earthlink.net OK
in the access file. I also tried to put
joe.blow@earthlink.net RELAY
Both to no avail..... Any other suggestions?

you have to create the access.db from your text file. sendmail doesn't read the text file

cd /etc/mail
/usr/sbin/makemap hash access.db < access

You also have to rebuild sendmail.cf from sendmail.mc
If that doesn't work, it is probably because your sendmail.mc is not configured to use access.db

I have created the access.db and sendmail is configured to use the access list. I have posted this on other sites and it sounds as if I could make a modification to my sendmail.mc file to let this person (and the others this is happening to) in.

Any help would be appreciated.
