Sendmail: dmhosting.g.ysm.yahoo.com.: user open


Hello,

Since a week or two we're getting the following process in our process list:

sendmail: MTA: ./l8RF7j5D011858 dmhosting.g.ysm.yahoo.com.: user open

We've changed nothing on our server.

If i look in our syslog there is a outgoing mail every 10 minuts:

Oct 1 11:32:34 localhost sm-mta[6548]: l8RF7j5D011858: to=<bbbbbbbbbb@dmhosting.g.ysm.yahoo.com>, ctladdr=<user@localhost.company.com> (514/501), delay=3+18:24:49, xdelay=00:06:19, mailer=esmtp, pri=48723633, relay=dmhosting.g.ysm.yahoo.com. [72.30.190.101], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection timed out with dmhosting.g.ysm.yahoo.com.

I can't find the cause of this problem.

Searching on internet didn't come up with anything. On internet there is a warning that the mail address dmhosting.g.ysm.yahoo.com often is used to swindle people.

Does anyone know where i can find the source of this problem?

Thank you in advance.

Grt.

If the connection is timing out, the message may still be left in the queue. Is there anything in either /var/spool/mqueue or /var/spool/clientmqueue that has been there for a while?

you can check by using this command sendmail -bp if there are still queued emails. ro remove it perfectly you can use webmin and use the sendmail interface.
