These go into /etc/mail/milter-sender.cf

If you install milter-sender it should have created 

If you've since thrownout that file or what to get the default version, 
just say:

milter-sender help=2 >/etc/mail/milter-sender.cf.new
diff -u /etc/mail/milter-sender.cf /etc/mail/milter-sender.cf.new
mv /etc/mail/milter-sender.cf.new /etc/mail/milter-sender.cf
/etc/init.d/milter-sender restart

First in /etc/syslog.conf do you allow for debug level logging to teh 

mail.*		/var/log/maillog

After restarting milter-sender, check the maillog, look for the 
milter-sender copyright. Look for any messages stating that it cannot 
access the access.db file (or sendmail.cf).

Next check that necessary files permissions are setup so that 
milter-sender can read sendmail.cf and access.db. See the Notes section 
of the documentation for suggestions. Simple solution:

	chmod a+r /etc/mail/sendmail.cf /etc/mail/access.db

BUT those can be destroyed when you rebuild those files. So you have to 
adjust things to make that stick.
