sendmail log reports (may be forged)
Posted on 1999-01-05
in my logs i get the following :
size=1139, class=0, pri=31139, nrcpts=1, msgid=<01BE38C8.85027CE0@MIKE_A.cas>, proto=SMTP, relay=MIKE_A.cas [126.96.36.199] (may be forged)
Jan 5 16:31:26 linux01 sendmail: QAA15581: to=<email@example.com>, ctlad
dr=<firstname.lastname@example.org> (547/547), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=rel
ay, relay=inetgway.cashbank. [188.8.131.52], stat=Sent (OK)
The mail does get deliverd, but it seems to me that there is
a problem since it gets relayed back to the user , why ?
and also get the mesg (may be forged) , my guess is that the
PC host name is different from the email user name ,
how do i fix this without having to rename user names ?
