unable to send mail since sendmail package update

hi. the sendmail packages on my f15 server were updated from 8.14.4-20 to 8.14.5-1 yesterday. since then, every attempt to send mail via a smart relay have failed with :

Jun 25 14:05:10 server sendmail[23512]: p5PD59jr023512: from=root, size=208, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<201106251305.p5PD59jr023512@server.{fromdom ain}>, relay=root@localhost

Jun 25 14:05:12 server sendmail[23514]: p5PD5B8l023514: Losing ./qfp5PD5B8l023514: savemail panic
Jun 25 14:05:12 server sendmail[23514]: p5PD5B8l023514: SYSERR(root): savemail: cannot save rejected email anywhere

i've tried using various different smtp relays and they all now throw the same error.

without going through all my sendmail config, i have the following entries in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc :
define(`SMART_HOST', `{smtp server}')dnl
FEATURE(`authinfo', `hash /etc/mail/authinfo')dnl

and the /etc/mail/authinfo file contains :
AuthInfo:{incoming mail server} "U:{user}" "P:{password}"

is anyone else getting this, or know what the cause is ? cheers.

Re: unable to send mail since sendmail package update

having read the doco for 8.14.5 at :

http://www.sendmail.com/sm/open_source/download/8.14.5/

i'm guessing i'm suffering from the errata listed :

ERRATA:

* (2011-05-26)
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. Problem noted by Lena. A patch (signature) is available.

i hope an update to the package that includes the patch will be released for fc15.
