compat_check FEATURE

The compat_check FEATURE in sendmail allows discarding, temporarily failing, or permanently rejecting mail based on an envelope sender and envelope recipient combination.

compat_check is used in conjunction with access_db. FEATURE(access_db) must appear before FEATURE(compat_check) in your sendmail macro configuration file. Place compat_check rules in the access database (i.e. /etc/mail/access).
