    How did you upgrade?  /etc/smrsh isn't the default from 
sendmail.org's source, which leads me to think you had a vendor supplied 
binary installation.  If that's the case, then you should use the 
vendor's update to upgrade sendmail.  However, since you seem to already 
have installed 8.12.8, (and I'm assuming you grabbed the source from 
sendmail.org), the default smrsh path is /usr/adm/sm.bin - which isn't 
created for you.

W | I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
