readme first
HP-UX and HI-UX/WE2 are "nice and fine" UNIX systems. Sendmail program was supported from HP-UX 8.05 and HI-UX 01.02 version. However, it seemed to be incorrectly under DNS (Berkeley Internet Domain Name Server ) and MX ( mail exchanger ) environ- ments . So we tried to install BSD sendmail 5.67 ( Berkeley Net2 ) + 1.6W( WIDE project ) on HP-UX and HI-UX/WE2. 1.6W is a patch that supports various functions. You can get it from the following anonymous ftp sites. (

In comp.sys.hp, Mike Peterson ( University of Toronto Chemistry Department, ) showed his collection of porting "tricks" and routines on 10 Aug 92 19:07:11 GMT. Those are very useful for us. We use them for porting sendmail 5.67 +1.6W. We thank his kindness.
