The config.h was renamed to options.h to support configure usage.

>From the online documentation

Settings are processed in this order:

   1.From the program's hard-wired internal defaults (specified in options.h)

Problem: option.h is not in my distribution (hypermail-2b30). config.h is there.

Am not an experienced C programmer, so it's not clear to me how to improvise here.

Have searched the mailing list archive.

The reason I need to do this -- and this is a good reason to make the command line options override the config file -- is that we will deal with multiple lists on the server. When a message comes to a list (these are low volume), the sendmail alias file will invoke a perl script with a "-m specific_mailbox" option. The label, list address, and other values, will need to be different for each list. But since the config file overrides the command line options, only one label and list address can be used.

Or am I missing something?
(Have thought about not using a config file at all, but I do believe I need to customize it in some ways.
Or if I comment out the variable in the config file, it will not override the variable in the command line. Correct?)

Many thanks in advance.
