Last updated on OCTOBER 08, 2019
Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 8.0 and later
This document will instruct you on how to determine if your sendmail configuration is using the "Secure by Default" profile. This is a possible cause for the symptom "can't receive mail".
The "Secure by Default Network Profile" is an installation enhancement that arrived with Solaris 10 Update 3 (Solaris 10 11/06).
This technical instruction will show how to check if this is affecting sendmail; how to determine if the Default Network Profile is enabled on the system; how to re-enable all services affected under the Default Network Profile or how to re-enable sendmail only.
For more detail on the "Secure by Default Network Profile", refer to:
Solaris 10 "What's New" for the Solaris 10 11/06 Release
