@manalisharmabe: difficult to tell without knowing the context to which this string is related. Since as moderator of this forum I can see your original message, as you submitted it before editing, I can tell you that it is a mail queue ID. I don't know if it has some meaning or if it's a random string, but I'm inclined to the second hypothesis.

@SL00b: please refrain from posting such useless posts, especially when they remove the thread from the zero-reply list, furthermore after only 6 minutes from its creation! Thanks.

Edit: nothing better to do than marking posts unhelpful here?!?

I understand that, as a moderator here, you feel it is within your rights to be as rude and arrogant as you like, so I will not respond to further provocation.

I will simply say we disagree, because I believe that pointing out that a poster has left out a vital piece of information is useful. It can draw his attention to the omission for correction.

You have a strange concept of rude and arrogant since I asked please and since I just reminded a basic rule of new threads, being automatically bumped three times until they receive answers in order to give them more visibility. Nuff' said.

We need more information on this. We need to know distro/setup/and what you are trying to accomplish.

hi guys,
Following is outout of
"uname -a"
Linux system22 2.4.21-4.ELcustom #2 Mon May 12 17:23:43 EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

[root@system22 root]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 1)

This is related to an incident when mail were not reaching to destination so this command was entered
[root@system32 root]# less /var/log/maillog | grep -i p8R5vdJB018035

then in output we checked logs it was showing "deffered" output. like status=deffered.

Actually i can't share the output it's confidential, my question was what is this "p8R5vdJB018035" and how we find it?
