It is waiting for input...you have to type something like 'testing' and
then CTRL-D to signal EOF. Check your digest-work directory... This *has*
to work before you should even consider what I wrote below...
If you are like me, you *may* have to use the 'u' flag in your sendmail.cf
file for the 'prog mailer'. This is because sendmail will change everything
to lower case on the right-hand side of the alias and '-C' parameter to
digest will turn into '-c' and digest doesn't like that....It will try to
take the next parameter '-l' as a filename!!...
Look for the 'Mprog' line in your sendmail.cf file and make sure you have
F=u (you should have other options as well, but this is the one that says
to leave the username alone. Keep in mind this will leave *ALL* usernames
alone...so it may *BREAK* other aliases you have...
I personally think the -C parameter should be changed to something else
to avoid this conflict.
I hope this helps...
