could someone please explain to me what the different statuses of the
sendmail daemon are?
I have been google-ing for days now to find some docs on sendmail but .....
I have been trying to figure out what all these things actually mean.. in
what is the difference between sendmail.cf and submit.cf .... what functions
of the daemon are they for?
# Settings for /etc/rc.sendmail:
sendmail_enable="YES" # Run the sendmail inbound daemon (YES/NO/NONE).
# If NONE, don't start any sendmail processes.
sendmail_flags="-L sm-mta -bd -q30m" # Flags to sendmail (as a server)
sendmail_submit_enable="YES" # Start a localhost-only MTA for mail
sm-mta -bd -q30m -ODaemonPortOptions=Addr=localhost"
# Flags for localhost-only MTA
sendmail_outbound_enable="YES" # Dequeue stuck mail (YES/NO).
sendmail_outbound_flags="-L sm-queue -q30m" # Flags to sendmail (outbound
sendmail_msp_queue_enable="YES" # Dequeue stuck clientmqueue mail (YES/NO).
sendmail_msp_queue_flags="-L sm-msp-queue -Ac -q30m"
# Flags for sendmail_msp_queue daemon.
and I haven't been able to find decent documentation. things like "...
/etc/mail/clientmqueue holds client mail..." mean absolutely nothing to me.
so if someone could just explain to me what they are with _examples_ OR
point me to some _DECENT_ docs I would greatly appreciate it.
thanx very much
