Hi everyone, I found a problem and its solution. Now I'd like someone to help me understand a few things please.
My stock sendmail cannot send emails to a certain domain due to broken DNS (AAAA) responses. All correspondence gets queued with a: (Deferred: Name server: <server here>.: host name lookup failure) Apparently, the following line in sendmail's .mc config file is sufficient: define(`confBIND_OPTS', `WorkAroundBrokenAAAA')dnl However, this doesn't help me at all. The only workaround that does the job is to recompile sendmail with NO_INET6=YES in /etc/make.conf. After that, everything gets sent immediately without problems. So my question is: why "define(`confBIND..." line doesn't get picked up by sendmail when compiled with INET6 support? The whole set-up is running on: FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p3 Sendmail 8.13.6 Any input on the matter would be highly appreciated. Cheers, Mikhail. -- Mikhail Goriachev Webanoide Telephone: +61 (0)3 62252501 Mobile Phone: +61 (0)4 38255158 E-Mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Web: http://www.webanoide.org PGP Key ID: 0x4E148A3B PGP Key Fingerprint: D96B 7C14 79A5 8824 B99D 9562 F50E 2F5D 4E14 8A3B _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
