TLS - how to ignore internal sendmail traffic

TLS - how to ignore internal sendmail traffic


I get alot of log lines that are useless in sendmail(OS version), when an email is already recieved but with a .forward file is forwarded to an external address. Basically internal sendmail traffic.

Jul  2 12:16:45 gale sendmail[29607]: STARTTLS=server, relay=localhost.localdomain [], version=TLSv1/SSLv3, verify=NO, cipher=DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA, bits=256/256
Jul  2 12:16:45 gale sendmail[29606]: STARTTLS=client, relay=[], version=TLSv1/SSLv3, verify=FAIL, cipher=DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA, bits=256/256

i have tried:
    in the /etc/mail/access
    Try_TLS:locahost    NO
    Try_TLS:    NO

TLS works fine for the connections who request it or support it, is there a way of telling sendmail to not try use TLS for internal traffic?

Many Thanks
