Sol 2.4 X.86 Sendmail Mail Queue

Sol 2.4 X.86 Sendmail Mail Queue

Post by Jeffery J. Haywa » Wed, 15 Mar 1995 00:17:56



On a Sol 2.4 X.86 box running DNS (not NIS) we occassionaly
have email get stuck in the mail queue.  Yes, sendmail is running with
the -q option and running at 10 minute intervals.  However, the mail
continues to queue.  Running S88sendmail stop and S88sendmail start to
stop/start sendmail will cause the mail to be delivered and the queue to
be flushed so I know the problem is not in the mail files themselves.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

To expand upon this question...the problem is that good mail for some
reason does not get sent the first time.  (I'm currently following the
threads discussing the possibility that this is linked to DNS, but I get
no timeout problems).  Thus an l* lock file is getting created in
mqueue.  So when sendmail goes to flush the queue it skips the "locked"
mail message.  Cleaning out the l* files will cause the mail in the queue
to be sent when sendmail starts up again.

Has anyone else had a problem with these lock files?

Thanks,

1. Sendmail 8.6.9 for Sol 2.1 (86)


Gcc 2.6.3 adds -Dsun to the specs file on x86 builds, so these sorts of
ifdef tests will work.  You can also add a -Dsun to the specs file of
whatever version you are using now.  I kind of prefer not to do this,
since some other package is probably going to do the wrong thing if -Dsun
is defined, and it's a simple matter to add -Dsun to the Makefile if it's
really needed, but who knows...
