First rename the old milter-sender.cf file to old and generate a new
default one, then compare them. Several options were renamed in the most
recent release as mentioned in the CHANGES.TXT.
Generate a default:
milter-sender -help >milter-sender.cf.default
Generate a merged. Old or incorrect options are silently ignored.
milter-sender -help file=/etc/mail/milter-sender.cf \
diff -u milter-sender.cf.old milter-sender.cf.merged | more
Also check the maillog for any permission errors. Most common things are:
a) old .pid file wasn't removed when the old milter was stopped.
b) access.db permissions deny the milter; see documentation Info section
on file permissions.
c) access.db file wrong Berkeley DB format, ie. sendmail & makemap are
linked with BDB 1.85 and milter-sender is linked BDB 3.3 or better. This
often happens with *BSD system out of the box, since I do not support
1.85. The /usr/ports can be used to rebuild and install sendmail/makemap
that use the same BDB library as the milter; rebuild your /etc/mail/*.db
files if this is the case. Try
to see which .db file format is in use.
d) cache file permissions and/or format change. Discard and let the
milter create a new cache.
