The "-a" activates usage of AUTH/IDENT, but it generates just
log information, and should not affect ....
... Ah, of course! When email is submitted via SMTP, it must
be submitted with FULL HEADERS, because it -- effectively -- is
external mail when submitted via SMTP.
I have SunOS4.1.3 + GCC-2.6.0, and SunOS5.3 + GCC-2.5.8
running this lattest version, and both have no problems what
so ever with "-a" running...
Following is enough on /etc/zmailer.conf
(and on ZMSRC/SiteConfig -file earlier)
It turns on the "auth/ident" -logger, and also designates
logfile. The "-s" -options requires parameters, and
therefore is a bit more difficult:
SMTPOPTIONS="-asl ve /var/log/mail/smtpserver"
which enables VRFY and EXPN -- like the default is.
The smtpserver.conf has entirely different function.
It is analyzed when a HELO/EHLO is given to server.
As documented on the smtpserver.conf -file, it turns on
a selected list of features (EXPN, VRFY) and can be used
to verify addresses on MAIL FROM:<> and RCPT TO:<>.
(Among other simple things...)
Ok, but all this doesn't explain why Marco got email
"From: "-headers stating "daemon@xxxxxx" ?
Perhaps SMTP-server's log shows what was entered
into it ? (At least MAIL FROM:<> and RCPT TO:<>'s)
