Previous: 38.8 Batch Rule-Set Testing Chapter 38
Rule-Set Testing with -bt
Next: V. Appendixes

38.9 Pitfalls

  • Old programs and scripts that are designed to use -bt mode to test addresses and the like tend to break with each release of sendmail . Fortunately, they are easy to fix if you know the language involved.

  • There is no way to currently define rules on the fly. Consequently, you need to modify a configuration file and run sendmail in rule-testing mode repeatedly until the new rules work.
