Well, it depends on the milter to some degree but for most general purposes you can review this:

http://www.sendmail.org/m4/adding_mailfilters.html

Additionally most milters aren't a single file, they're a multitude of files that perform various operations on the mail as its coming in or during processing at some point.

Knowing what milter you're trying to install and use would be useful information.

milter executable file location

Hi,

I wrote simple milter contain only main function.

I want to know that "what is next?".

I made executable and kept it in /usr/sbin.

Following changes in sendmail.mc:

dnl INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`KMilter', `S=inet:9999@localhost')dnl
dnl define(`confINPUT_MAIL_FILTER', `KMilter')dnl

then also facing the error:

Dec 31 04:02:04 localhost sendmail[29712]: nBUMW4LG029712: Milter (KMilter): error connecting to filter: Connection refused by localhost
Dec 31 04:02:04 localhost sendmail[29712]: nBUMW4LG029712: Milter (KMilter): to error state

If you do a netstat -plan do you see something listening on port 9999 on localhost?
