You need to specify the database type as a prefix. If you had simply
used the default:
then it is smart enough to recognise access.db and try first hash, then
btree database types. Once you change the file name of the path, you
have to specify the database type as well, since the code does not
trigger based on the file extension.

No. For the following reasons:
1. You changed the access-db entry, therefore all the sendmail access.db
entries are NOT referenced since they typically live in another file
(unless you duplicate them in the new file) and the milter only opens
one access-db and that option appears to been incorrectly specified as
2. The access-db mappings have a precedence order. milter-cli-* tags
have highest precedence. The documentation shows the precedence order
within each SMTP state, though "milter-cli-Connect:126.96.36.199 REJECT" would
have rejected, but the problem is in the access-db specification since
it could not read your access.db file to start with.
