well, i updated sendmail using up2date, however, i got two warnings which i do not understand.

they went something along these lines:

Warning: your sendmail.mc file is now sendmail.mc.rpmnew
Warning: your sendmail.cf file is now sendmail.cf.rpmnew

What do i do now and what does this mean?

Sendmail still appears to be working fine.

thanks again for your help everyone

The rpmnew ones will be the new versions of the configuration files for the version of sendmail you have now. Possibly different options/default options in them.

You could rename your current ones sendmail.cf.old etc. and take away the .rpmnew extension to use the new ones, restart sendmail. You'll probably need to reconfigure sendmail again though. If it don't work you can always use the .old version again.

Is this safe to do? Leave the old sendmail files running and just ignore the new files with the rpmnew extension? What are the consequences of leaving it the way it is? At the moment, everything is working with the old original files!!

thanks again

I guess if everything is working fine the old adage - if it ain't broke - applies. I take it Languard has stopped complainging now?


Good to see ya recovered from your problem in the other thread without resorting to fdisk - my favourite tool in the past when I used to kill my installion reguarly through tinkering with it

thanks looking lost. I will leave sendmail as is.

No, still cannot figure out why languard brings up so many ports open when running it from home across the internet.

I am still having problems closing the ports that languard says are open. I have included the ports in my iptables so that any input is dropped, but i want to disable them once and for all.
