Need help with Sendmail optimization

Need help with Sendmail optimization

Post by Christopher Deev » Sat, 28 Dec 1996 04:00:00

We're using Linux 1.2.1 and seem to be getting slow performance out of
Sendmail.  The Linux box is a 486 DX something or other with 8 MB of
RAM.  We are exchanging mail via UUCP with an ISP.  We also have a
dialup port which can be used for a PPP connect.  All of this seems to
work OK.

The problem is that when sending mail - either with Exchange for Win95
or Eurdora - or even when using PINE locally it sometimes takes
between 5 and 10 minutes for the "sending" process to finish.  When
using the mail command - sending is always instant.

We thought upgrading to a new Linux distrubution or upgrading the box
might help speed up the Sendmail process, but does anyone have other
ideas or insights.

1. AmiVIs+Sendmail+Sophos - Need a little help please with for ..

I have Sophos+AmiVis installed with sendmail 8.9.3, and Sophos. On FreeBSD

I've got everything working except the bit.
The instructions with the AmiVIs thing on the website, are pretty simple -
but dont work!

I changed the to read as they say, but sendmail then complains
that there is no local mailer ?

Does any one have this combination running, and could give me a clue here.

Thanks very much for any help,
