    Default Sendmail configuration

    Hello folks,

    I'm trying to get sendmail configured, but for some reason make
    doesn't know how to make my .cf file. Here's a summary:

    # cd /etc/mail
    # cp /usr/lib/mail/cf/main.mc ./test.mc
    # more ./test.mc
    divert(-1)dnl
    # (some legal stuff)
    divert(0)dnl
    VERSIONID(`(#)main.mc 1.5 (Sun) 08/10/00')
    OSTYPE(`solaris8')dnl
    DOMAIN(`solaris-generic')dnl
    MAILER(`local')dnl
    MAILER(`smtp')dnl
    # /usr/ccs/bin/make test.cf
    make: Fatal error: Don't know how to make target `test.cf'

    I'm following the instructions of the Sun doentation at:
    [url]http://docs.sun.com/db/doc/817-0204/6mg168c38?a=view[/url]

    TIA for any help,
    -Dan

    If you'd run make in /usr/lib/mail/cf directory it might work.
    But you've copied file into another directory, and there is
    no Makefile in there. The -f option might help here.

    /usr/ccs/bin/make -f /usr/lib/mail/cf/Makefile test.cf

    (But it will probably fail because make will try to use
    "../m4/cf.m4". So, better make your test config in the
    /usr/lib/mail/cf directory, then copy it into /etc/mail.)

    correct - sort of - I see : cp main.mc myhost.mc
