Hello !

This is just a problem with space in between the lines.
Some asked for the sendmail patch.
I got it from

Iam including the original message below.


Hello Managers !

I copied the lines from sendmails web site to stop the Melissa virus at the
server.(added these lines in the file.)

HSubject: $>Check_Subject
D{MPat}Important Message From
D{MMsg}This message may contain the Melissa virus.

R${MPat} $* $#error $: 553 ${MMsg}
RRe: ${MPat} $* $#error $: 553 ${MMsg}

By doing this iam just able to stop relaying the messages with subject:Important Message From, but it still receives mails with this subject.
(I tried this by sending a mail from outside domains to this server.)

How to reject the incoming mails withthis subject ?

Thanks in advance.
