SendMail problem after the latest upgrade
Posted on 2003-03-04
My server is running RedHat Linux 8. Today I installed sendmail update as it is available from redhat up2date agent. After the installation, I could not send any mail outside. I can receive incoming mail. I found this in the maillog entry:
relay=[127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]
Before the update my ip address is displayed instead of 127.0.0.1. After the update for some reason it is showing up as 127.0.0.1 and so mail is not going out. I thoroughly checked nameserver configuration and network configurations. Everything looks fine. I still don't understand why it is trying to relay thru 127.0.0.1 after the update.
Appreciate any help.
