Unhappy Sendmail RH Linux 7.3 (Valhalla) Kernel 2.4.18-3bigmem on an i686


The emails are arriving late....as in the next day.

Probably not what you want to hear but since running GNU/Linux is all about performance, protecting assets and providing services in a continuous, stable and secure way I would like to emphasise Red Hat Linux maintenance and errata support ended on April 30 of 2004 for all YES ALL Red Hat Linux releases (not RHEL). So the version you run is obsolete, no longer maintained and unsupported. This means you miss out on all the new technology that's been around for ages, all the bug fixes and all the security updates. Unless you have the knowledge and time to maintain this setup yourself to keep it from (doing) harm, keeping your machine attached to the Internet makes it a hazard not only for you but for the whole community.

If you're a seasoned admin and need to worry about legacy applications, by all means continue to run it in peace. Else, if you like the effort Red Hat puts into certification, ISV acceptance, support longevity and stability of RHEL but don't want to pay for RHEL then you could run CentOS (current is 5.2). If you like what RHL provided then you could run Fedora (stable is 10 right now). Else maybe check out the many "choose a distro" threads or the megathread at LQ?..

Explain again but using sender time, maillog entries and recipient header time?

I don't know. You didn't post any "setup" information. Maybe you could elaborate?
