I too am running sendmail, and unfortunately I have no information on 
how to do this. I know that it can be done, but I have yet to find a 
how-to or something similar which explains how. Commenting out the 


is supposed to take care of most of that. But it still seems like some 
of this type of crap gets through too.

I have noticed that Postfix seems to have a lot of these kinds of 
features and that it seems relatively easy to configure. I have been 
pondering a switch to Postfix, though I have been using sendmail for 
years and am very familiar with it, so I don't know....
