Interrelating Options

At the end of this chapter we describe all the options in detail, with those descriptions in alphabetical order for easy lookup. Here, we present them grouped by application with only a brief description.

File Locations

sendmail knows the location of only its configuration file.[6] Options in the configuration file tell sendmail where all other files and directories are located. The options that specify file locations are summarized in Table 24-6. All file location options are of type string.
