Can anyone tell me how to avoid the X-Authentication warning,
Y have sendmail 8.12 and runs a user: mail group: daemon
It is running on a cobalt RAQ4(Linux i386), and the management of lists are
made through php and cgi scripts.
After installing sendmail, (and its security features), I cannot get
majordomo to work correctly.
My actual problems read X-Authentication Problems.Nad I am almost sure it is
a permission problem, I added mail as a trusted user and no luck.
X-Authentication-Warning: admin.xnet.com.mx: mail set sender to
firstname.lastname@example.org using -f
And addresses are not expanded correctly.
My /usr/local majordomo is chmod 750 and wrapper is owned by mail.daemon,
I have tried to override sendmails new protective features, without much
Anyboday Who can help?

There was an error in RedHat RPMs from about that time. The included
majordomo.cf had this:
$whereami = `/bin/dnsdomainname`;
which is neat but has the side effect of putting a blank line in the
Sometimes it makes no difference but if there are any following headers they
become part of the message and don't get interpreted as headers.
The simple fix is to modify that line to read:
$whereami = `/bin/dnsdomainname`; chomp($whereami);
