I am getting this in my /var/log/maillog:
Apr 23 15:23:39 library sm-mta: i3NJNd8g000169: localhost
[127.0.0.1] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to MTA
when my Tomcat serlvets attempt to send an email from my web app.
I only want sendmail listing on 127.0.0.1:25, and the web app is
configured to use 127.0.0.1 as it's mail server. It works fine on my Red
Hat implementation, but I'm guessing FreeBSD sendmail is tightened up
I know that sendmail is working, because I can use the 'mail' MUA and
send myself a quick email.
I'm guessing this is a little different that just going #mail blahblah,
because I'm doing mail relaying? But why would sendmail be denying mail
relaying from itself (localhost).
Is this fairly simple to address? I know its probably stupid, but I
haven't played with sendmail in about 3 years, and never completely
understood then either.
Thanks for any info.
