Bug #953

Updated by tuxillo almost 3 years ago

1. According to the man page, -q does not take an argument (see

simple patch below).

2. dma sends EHLO without reading the server greeting first. This

causes rejections by some anti-spam measures, e.g., greet_pause in

sendmail 8, or "illegal pipelining" in some other MTAs.

3. dma does not read the server greeting to determine whether

STARTTLS or AUTH are available (minor problem as this probably is

just a configuration problem because only one "smarthost" is


4. If you want to make this a "full blown" mail submission program,

you might want to merge some features from femail.c (written by

Henning Brauer) into it, e.g., to read recipients from the message

headers, or to add required headers. femail.c lacks queueing which

dma supports.
