compilation fails for me

/usr/include/openssl/rsa.h:193:1: note: declared here
DEPRECATEDIN_0_9_8(RSA *RSA_generate_key(int bits, unsigned long e, void
tls.c: In function ‘x509_verify_cb’:
tls.c:1974:10: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type ‘X509_STORE_CTX {aka struct x509_store_ctx_st}’
if (ctx->error == X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_GET_CRL)

that leads to

The install stalls while trying to find/download

It seems this is a dead link.

sendmail binary builds fine from the original tarball so something must be wrong with your PKGBUILD e.g. the echo "APPENDDEF... options

jaro3 commented on 2015-07-10 07:35

The package is missing the main program binary after build:

yaourt -S --aur-url sendmail
chown: cannot access ‘/usr/bin/sendmail’: No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access ‘/usr/bin/sendmail’: No such file or directory
error: command failed to execute correctly

Here is the problem:

cd sendmail/
daemon.o: In function `anynet_ntop':
daemon.c:(.text+0x1434): undefined reference to `sm_inet6_ntop'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:443: recipe for target 'sendmail' failed
make: *** [sendmail] Error 1

Curl fails to connect the FTP server. BTW, the current version is 8.15.1.

This conflicts with msmtp-mta. Both provide /usr/bin/sendmail

When you stop sendmail, sm-client does not stop and continues to run.

To solve this please add this in [Unit] section of sm-client.service

sendmail conflicts with postfix, exim and opensmtpd

i.e. whatever is in smtp-server

pacman -Ss smtp-server

Yes, it was missing the INET6 portion. I am kinda surprised I had to specify it in order for it work on inet6. ATM, working properly on Arch running this routing some complex emails. I think a working mc example addition. In case someone is interested to see how it works on one of my machines in Zurich...

compile via m4 /etc/mail/ > /etc/mail/

Although, I will try to add a package to actually have usable makefile that gets installed to /etc/mail. One where one can generate updates and such to mcs and other files.

And as for NEWDB it allows for BerkleyDB to build aliases etc.
