Is sendmail that came with solaris 2.2 broken? We have a few
sparcs in the office, and mail don't seem to like to work on 3 of
them. I've ftped the sendmail binary from the 4th sparc onto one of
the other 3, and when I restart it, it'll work. For a day or so.
Then it won't work again. I used to get this error:
Connected to xxx.yyy.edu:
<<< 553 xxx. host name configuration errorQuote:>>> HELO xxx.
After I ftped the new binary over, when sendmail decides not
to work, it won't even give me a message notifying me of the error.
Also, I can't seem to delete mail that I've read. Even when I
su (then, it tells me can only delete mail as owner). The error I get
mail: Cannot open savefile
%ls -al /var/mail/tai
-rwxrwxrwx 1 tai root 1514 Apr 29 22:24 /var/mail/tai
Can some solaris/sendmail gods help?
ps: Yes, I'm going to get the real sendmail, but gcc's not fully
installed right now, and I would like to get mail working first.
pps: Please tell me this problem is fixable?
