Dear All,
I've tar my mail queue from the sendmail queue directory and now want to untar it and if I untar it, the question is how can I move it to the queue directory again to send the mail..., if there is any difficulty? I untar it because the queue was full...

Please don't make it sound like a demand.

And what if the poor bugger doesn't run Xorg, X11 or GNOME on his headless server anyway (which would be good)?

By using "-C" as in 'tar -C /var/spool/clientmqueue/ -xzf /path/to/archive.tar.gz' or by cd'ing into the target directory root first 'cd /var/spool/ && tar -xzf /path/to/archive.tar.gz'. How the path component of "-C" or where you cd to depends on the path set inside the archive which you view with something like 'tar -vtzf /path/to/archive.tar.gz|head -30'.

Obviously it would be best to have the cause for filling the queue first, right?

Its so simple. Just untar it (tar xvzf) the archive and all mails will be extracted to the spool directoy (Depends how you created the archive, and how you extracted it). Sendmail will recognize the queue mails and will try to send it. If you want to know exactly how to extract it please post the exact command you used to tar the mail queue and what was your Current Working directory (pwd)

Sorry to all for giving that title...

I used the command: tar cvfz mqueue-rx.gz mqueue-rx from pwd:/var/spool directory...

thanks to all for replying ..
