Sendmail Open Source MTA
Sendmail, Inc., and the Sendmail Consortium announce the availability of sendmail 8.14.6. This version fixes a few problems, including:
- If a server offers two AUTH lines, the MTA would not read them after STARTTLS has been used and hence SMTP AUTH for the client side would fail.
- Hostnames are no longer cached internally in a non case sensitive way as that may cause addresses to change from lower case to upper case or vice versa.
- It was possible that new queue runners could not be started anymore if MaxQueueChildren was set.
A complete list of changes can be found in the release notes (see below).
Please send bug reports and general feedback to one of the addresses listed at one of the following addresses.

You either need the first two files or the third and fourth, i.e., the gzip'ed version or the compressed version and the corresponding sig file. The PGP signature was created using the Sendmail Signing Key/2012, available on the web site (http://www.sendmail.com/sm/open_source/download/) or on the public key servers.
Since sendmail 8.11 and later includes hooks to cryptography, the following information from OpenSSL applies to sendmail as well.
The wrong list of macros is sent to a milter in the EHLO stage.
Problem found by Fabrice Bellet, reported via RedHat (Jaroslav Skarvada).
