Sendmail | slackware | Thunderbird
i have had to create a new server [Old one died - hardware problems]
So I've installed Slackware 10.2 [it was previously a slackware 10.1]
however now I have a mail problem.
Machines on the local net can no longer send mail - Thunderbird just goes into a asking passowrd loop and never completes.
:- in the /var/log/maillog file
stranger sm-mta: l3UBARSH007596: Donkey [192.168.2.2] (may be forged): possible SMTP attack: command=AUTH, count=6
stranger sm-mta: l3UDZ6YI025353: Donkey [192.168.2.2] (may be forged): possible SMTP attack: command=AUTH, count=6
if I telnet to port 25 I can send mail by issing the mail commands directly
and a couple o people seem to be able to send with outlook - btu thunderbird just never does anything
people can receive mail fine
still seems to happen on Slack 11 also - so what have I done.
