Useful Tables

There is only one useful table in this chapter.

Table of Configuration File Commands

The sendmail.cf file is line-oriented, with one configuration command per line. Each configuration command consists of a single letter[22] that must begin a line. Each letter is followed by other information as required by that particular command.

The configuration file can also have lines that begin with a # to form a comment line, or with a tab or space character to form a continuation line. A list of all legal characters that can begin a line in the configuration file is shown in Table 17-1.
