sendmail 8.13.6 on FC2 server with SASL/STARTTLS
We installed sendmail 8.13.6, but authorization using a username and
password from Thunderbird is not working as before.
I don't have time to upgrade the server to FC4 or 5 right now. I'd just
like to configure sendmail 8.13.6 so that it worked as before.
The latest sendmail built for FC is 8.12.11, so I can't use that because
of the security problem.
The instructions with sendmail were used:
sh Build -c -f `pwd`/devtools/Site/site.config.m4
to include STARTTLS, etc.
The previous configuration files (sendmail.mc) from 8.12.11 were
The only thing I can think of is that the sendmail binary
produced is a dynamic library, whereas the one distributed
with FC2 is a shared executable. I've built sendmail shared, but it
fails with a segmentation fault.
Does anyone know the ENVDEFS that should be used to build
a shared binary for FC?
Thanks in advance. Any advice appreciated.

so STARTTLS is starting. Perhaps it has to do with AUTH not listing PLAIN
Not sure what you are looking for with netstat. It is really long so
I just cut out the part about imaps and pop3s.
