I'm running a FreeBSD 2.2.6 system that's giving me fits.
I have a user on the system whose userid is 'jones'.
If I enter '/usr/bin/mail jones', I can enter a subject, body,
and then send the message. However nothing ever arrives in
/var/mail for jones. I get no error messages, the postmaster
gets no error messages. I've triple-checked the permissions
and owners on all the directories and executables I can think
of, and I've compared them with another 2.2.6 system that
works as it should. The difference between the two systems
is the version of Sendmail - the non-functioning system has
Sendmail 8.9 on it.
BTW, if I run '/usr/libexec/mail.local jones', at least a
minimal message appears for jones in /var/mail (there are
minimal headers, etc in it).
I'm at wits end on this one. Anyone have a clue what I've
