Hi all, 

I have had following message in my periodic daily output for several days:

Removing stale entries from sendmail host status cache:
purgestat: no mapping in /etc/mail/mailer.conf

But I did no changes in my smtpd (qmail) configuration. It works well, both the
local and the remove delivery seems to work ok. My /etc/mail/mailer.conf
contains the following lines (comments are sniped):

sendmail        /var/qmail/bin/sendmail
send-mail       /var/qmail/bin/sendmail
mailq           /var/qmail/bin/qmail-qread
newaliases      /var/qmail/bin/newaliases

File permisions seems to be ok too:

-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  324B Feb  9 11:01 /etc/mail/mailer.conf

Can I silently ignore this message? Oh, yes, my system is: 

FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE #0: Wed Feb 11

Be free to ask for more information... Thanks for advices. 

Jozef Babjak.
