so here is somebody who complains that he cannot send around
Hey, you proper fellow, what are your obvious reasons to 'sanitize'
your partner? MIght it be you have no business to send mail there in
interactive mode by telnetting into their sendmail?
I would say that there is no real world interest sending around
anonymous letters. Sendmail has some features that are intended for
interactive debugging. Some of those had caused a lot of headaches
in the past, e.g., running commands under sendmail's privileges (see
Morrison's worm). This one here is obviously to shorten interactive
logins to the sendmail port (telnet).
So, now explain please to the list your obvious reasons and why you
need that feature so badly, and why you do not call up ANS or send
them mail, since you have a mailer's address? How about sending it
to root at the host you 'sanitized' away?
