Hi There,

Im using sendmail and amavis on a suse 9.0 (32 bit) machine along with sophos

Any ideas what i am doing wrong?

Probably nothing. There's a bug in SuSEconfig.sendmail (which is responsible for creating the correct /etc/sendmail.cf for amavisd-new).

Please apply the attached patch to /sbin/conf.d/SuSEconfig.sendmail and
run SuSEconfig again. Grep for amavis in /etc/sendmail.cf then to see if the correct settings for amavis have been written.

Kudos to Dirk Borches who found the bug originally back in November 2003.


best regards,
