  • 1.  Sendmail with SASL and TLS

    Posted Wed October 06, 2021 09:44 AM
    Because of e-mail provider change I had to modify Sendmail configuration, but it is not as easy as I expected due to needed TLS and SASL support. First I realized, that /usr/sbin/sendmail has no support for TLS or SASL. So I tried /usr/sbin/sendmail_ssl - it supports TLS, but not SASL. Finally I installed sendmail from AIX Toolbox, but /opt/freeware/sbin/sendmail supports SASL, not TLS.

    I was not able to find any sendmail binary with TLS and SASL support, so it seems that I have to compile it myself. Or is there any other possibility to solve this problem?

    It's already an RFE with a "Planned for a future release" (which usually comes without a date).

    Open an RFE for AIX.  Say that you need TLS&SASL on sendmail.

    We are working on building latest sendmail with SASL, TLS & ldap support to be available on AIX Toolbox.
    Hopefully it will be available in one to one and half month.

    I noticed that Sendmail with SASL is done already - latest comment in the RFE is "Available in the December 2021 GA of AIX 7.3".

    Does it mean that Sendmail will be available in AIX 7.3 in December, not as RPM in AIX Toolbox sooner?
