Versions of the Configuration File
a configuration option that enables you to define the version of the sendmail.cf file. This option enables older configuration
files to be used with the current version of sendmail.
You can set the version level to values between 0 and 10. You can also define the vendor. Either Berkeley or Sun
is a valid vendor option. If a version level is specified but no vendor
is defined, Sun is used as the default vendor setting.
The following table lists some of the valid options.
