      Description

      This line in sendmail.py:

      from_addr = os.environ['USER'] + '@' + socket.getfqdn()

      causes my mail-delivery to crash:

      <--snip-->

      Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/sbin/sendmail", line 126, in ?
      main(sys.argv)
      File "/usr/sbin/sendmail", line 77, in main
      from_addr = os.environ['USER'] + '@' + socket.getfqdn()
      File "/usr/lib/python2.3/UserDict.py", line 19, in _getitem_
      def _getitem_(self, key): return self.data[key]
      KeyError: 'USER'

      </--snip-->

      I think it's an permission-thing, but didn't went any further.

      I just changed it to

      from_addr = "postmaster@localhost"

      (since the sender is pased by "-f") and now it works.
