Search the archives, there might have been a solution posted.

There was the usual question as to why you would compile instead of using
the suse packages, but I assume you had your reasons.

Okay - I see it did indeed show up. No solution though. I was building
sendmail because that's what I knew how to do from my pre-linux days.
I'll probably just use the rpm sendmail, but the rpm sendmail config
seems extremely convoluted as opposed to a simple "sh Build -c install"
or "sh Build", but perhaps I can still learn something new.
We'll see.

Thanks all!


Some time ago I came across a script that takes all the pain out of
configuring sendmail for a basic setup. It handles all the common options and
will also configure fetchmail for you as well. Simple q&a style with plain
english explanations of what you're configuring.

I just googled it and found it at

It was last updated for sendmail 8.12.x - I have tested it with the current
version on openSuse and it works fine for my needs.

Caveat: It is no longer supported by the author and there is no guarantee that
it will continue to work with future versions of sendmail.

Hope this is helpful.
