Accepting certain unqualified senders

With Sendmail's access database, you can selectively accept unqualified senders without globally allowing them with the accept_unqualified_senders feature. For example, the Remote System Console (RSC) cards on some of our Solaris servers send emails without a domain name.

To accept mail from rsc_card (without a domain name), we would use the following Sendmail access database entry:

From:rsc_card@ ok

Note that the "@" sign is required to selectively accept unqualified sender addresses.
