majordomo and 'hostile' addresses 27 July 2000
If you ever see this message:
MAJORDOMO ABORT (mj_majordomo)!! HOSTILE ADDRESS (no x400 c=) email@example.com
don't worry, it's not an attack. It's just someone using an address which is slight less common. You can tell majordomo to accept it with a configuration setting. In /usr/local/majordomo/majordomo.cf, you will find something like this:
# # If you will be receiving x400 addresses without the c= or a[dm]= # parts set the $no_true_x400 variable to 1. This will disable # checking for "c=" and "a[dm]=" pieces. # $no_true_x400 = 1;
Set the flag to 1, and your problem will go away.
