I was running 8.8.7.
And it's not like it was an easy patch to look at and apply to the version running.
No, that would be too easy.
So I'm looking at either
sendmail 8.12.8 or finally
which Mark and Kelly use and swear by. I only stuck
sendmail because I generally dislike changing software if
I can avoid doing so (I like when computers run themselves smoothly).
I also don't handle stress that well, and email for me (well, me, Spring, Mark and about half a dozen other people) is critical. A fundamental right. Something that I (and the others mentioned) can't do without. So I needed to get back online. And that's bad enough.
Throw in two kids who were just a tad too loud; I ended up fleeing the area.
In talking it over, Spring decided to take the kids on a few errands, which included getting the dog a dog house since it seems less skittish when outside (the less I talk about the dog, the better). During the time they were away, the dog managed to escape from the Facility in the Middle of Nowhere.
That's all I needed.
Did I mention that I don't handle stress well?
Much wailing and knashing of teeth later, the dog it back, postfix is running (remember: if you include virtual hosting, make sure the virtual hosting file actually exists) and the kids are (supposedly) asleep.
And to think, it's only been four days.
