Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Did some searching but most posts talk about how to empty the mqueue not how to save it.
In normal operation Sendmail puts the message files in /var/spool/mqueue to be sent out then deletes the entries once the message is sent. On a new mail server this is working like a champ.
However since it is a mail server which we created to handle a new domain for automated billing message there is a desire to see the actual text of the messages we are sending out. (Messages are originating from an Oracle process on another server and being relayed through this one to the outside world.)
Of course a while loop could be created to try to copy the files as they are created but it would likely be fairly hit or miss and also would likely chew up a lot of CPU.
Iím wondering if there is an adjustment that can be made to sendmail.cf that would make it either hold the messages after sent or duplicate the ones sent to another directory?
