Do a search in sendmail.cf for 'SmtpGreetingMessage'.

Change from ...

O SmtpGreetingMessage=$j Sendmail $v/$Z; $b

to :

O SmtpGreetingMessage=$j $b

then a simple killall -HUP sendmail should fix it. (This works on RedHat 8)

End result when you try to telnet is ...

# telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 localhost ESMTP Wed, 11 Jun 2003 10:50:07 +1000
221 2.0.0 localhost closing connection
Connection closed by foreign host.
