8.14 is the latest. Anyway, 8.12 works just fine in regard to what you 
want to achieve. You are doing something wrong, but it's not obvious what 
it is. I suggest you install Webmin on your machine and use that for 
administering that portion of sendmail, that is *much* easier than editing 
access and running makemap each time you want to change something.

BTW, I think this is wrong:
'makemap hash /etc/mail/access < /etc/mail/access'
'makemap hash /etc/mail/access.db < /etc/mail/access'
notice the missing suffix?
You may have actually overwritten your original access file. Don't you get 
any kind of an error message?

I also think that simply doing a "makemap access" in /etc/mail should 
produce your access.db if I remember right.
