I have recently run into a problem, that I'm having a little difficulty
I run a Debian Mail server:
Sendmail is configured with:
I discovered, by accident, that outgoing mail, with a non-local domainname,
for the sender (accidentially misspelled in this case), is relayed without
The misspelled domain does resolve on the internet.
I have not been able to figure out how to cause sendmail to either reject, or
rewrite, the sender in this case.
Mimedefang is configured with "filter_sender" which currently verifies that
address, which claim to be from my domains are actually from an IP address in
my domains. I am considering adding reverse tests, to verify that mail from
one of my IP addresses actually claims to be from one of my domains.
Since I don't believe that filter_sender can rewrite the address (this would
be acceptable in this case), I think I would have to REJECT the message.
Can anyone suggest a better solution?
