Turns out the new set was as a result of my company's new "Anti-Spam"
installation. All my IP addresses were being rejected. My Networking folks

I have a question about my sendmail configuration that is really bothering
me.... I recently upgraded from
Solaris 2.5.1 to Solaris 8 on an Ultra5.... Sendmail worked fine under the
old configuration, but not now.
My aliases are all the same...

When I do the following:

mailx -v
Subject: Test

I get:

root... aliased to /dev/null
/dead.letter... Saved in /dead.letter

ANyone have any ideas? I'm attaching my current and the old one
(sendmail complains if I use the old one)
