The original thought behind the option that you just disabled was
to restrict where the sendmail listened for connections , so that
it wouldn't be an open relay ( relaying , sending emails to the

would have to reenable the above option or edit access.db , so
that your sendmail would relay emails
just for you and not for the entire world

By default RH ships sendmail configured with access_db enabled and relaying only allowed by localhost in the /etc/mail/access

I guess that stands for all versions up to Fedora Core 4
including Fedora Core 4 ( am using Fedora Core 1 but
with a self compiled sendmail , so am not  tottaly aware
of what exactly Redhat is doing .

configuration file so this shouldn't be a problem unless a different configuration is being used by him.
Thanks for the correction Mike , no i was assuming that
he was using the default configuration . As i have a
standalone computer the defaults have always been
working nicely.
