V8.8 sendmail has introduced a suite of named rule
sets that have special internal meaning.
If one of these rule sets
does not exist, the address is accepted. If it exists and if
the rule set returns
anything other than an
#error delivery agent,
the message is accepted. Otherwise the message is rejected.
Compares or contrasts each envelope sender and envelope recipient pair of addresses just before delivery, and validates based on the result. The workspace looks like this:
The sender address is separated from the recipient address by a single token that is the $| operator (see §29.10.4).
Validates the sender-envelope address as given in the SMTP MAIL command. The workspace, on entry, contains a hostname that should be preprocessed by rule set 3 (see §29.10.1).
Validates the recipient-envelope address as given in the SMTP RCPT command. The workspace, on entry, contains a hostname that should be preprocessed by rule set 3 (see §29.10.2).
Validates incoming network connections and can be used if libwrap.a code was omitted from your release of sendmail. The workspace looks like this:
The hostname is separated from the IP number by a single token that is the $| operator (see §29.10.3).
