Question sendmail 8.12.10


hi there,
i am new to this forum and actually to linux too.

i have configured sendmail according to a tutorial.
but when i restart linux it tells the following error message


554 5.0.0 /etc/sendmail.cf: line 1: invalid argument to V line: "ERSIONID(Id)"
554 5.0.0 /etc/sendmail.cf: line 2: MAILER(local)MAILER(smpt): A=argument required
554 5.0.0 No local mailer defined
554 5.0.0 QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set

any idea?

Check the .mc file you used to create sendmail.cf. You must have a typo at line 2 where VERSIONID is defined.

Regards

dnl is used to put a comment in a line. Perhaps the error is somewhere before VERSIONID (which btw is not necessary). Can you post you mc file to see if we can figure out what's wrong?
