I've just installed sendmail 8.7.5 on a Sun ultra machine (Sol 2.5)
incoming mail gets delivered normally. "All" outgoing mail sits in the
queue for some time and then is delivered. I start sendmail with
/usr/lib/sendmail -bd -q15m
I notice that over time I've got many
/usr/lib/sendmail -bd -q15m lines in the process table. Is this normal?
also I notice that if I do /usr/lib/sendmail -q -v just about all
of the mail in the queue is delivered normally. Whats going on here?
Any clues would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
