8.8.5 is broken if you use maps. I applied the following patch that I found
in www.sendmail.org and now my Sendmail 8.8.5 works fine. I'll start
fighting Spam right now!!! (Yahoooo!!!! :-)

(this patch should be in 8.8.6 or greater)

See ya.

As promised, here is a patch so check_relay will be able use maps as well.
This change should be in 8.8.6.  You should change from using classes to using
maps to avoid the need to restart.
