In looking at my /etc/hosts.allow file, I find the following line:

	ALL : ALL : allow

then later in the file:

	sendmail : localhost : allow
	sendmail : .nice.guy.example.com : allow
	sendmail : .evil.cracker.example.com : deny
	sendmail : ALL : allow

Shouldn't these lines be allowing everything needed for other domains
to be able to check (those with valid accounts on my server) from my
server and send mail to my server.

Also, how does this file interact with sendmail and the
/etc/mail/relay-domains files.

Thanks,

Charles
