Thumbs up Sendmail doesn't send emails


Suse 10.1 installed right now, Apache 2.2, PHP 5 and Kerio mail server.

In PHP.INI I wrote sendmailpath = /opt/local/kerio/sendmail -t -i , it's suggested to use kerio mailserver sendmail.

I even tryed with the Suse sendmail but nothing happen, every change of PHP.INI I always restart apache.

What else can I check ?

I'm not familiar with the kerio sendmail server, I'm just familiar with regular old sendmail.

You can check the log files. You should always start with checking log files when something wrong happens. Your log files for sendmail should be /var/log/maillog. You can also check the output of 'ps -aux | grep sendmail' to see if sendmail is actually up and running. You can telnet into your local computer (i.e, 'telnet 127.0.0.1 25') and see if Sendmail is accepting connections. You can also try sending an email using the 'mail' command and then rechecking the log files. Post some of your finding and we'll take a look at it.

It seems that nothing is working, from "ps -aux | grep sendmail" the answer is :

linux-nhwz:~ # ps -aux | grep sendmail
Warning: bad ps syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See http://procps.sf.net/faq.html
root 9134 0.0 0.0 1856 636 pts/1 S+ 05:38 0:00 grep sendmail
linux-nhwz:~ #

The log files that I found are just for postfix that is now off.

This says that sendmail is not running. The grep sendmail is the grep command that you are currently running. If sendmail was running you would see something similar to
Code:
Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See /usr/share/doc/procps-3.2.3/FAQ
root      1853  0.0  0.0  5692 1856 ?        Ss   Jul13   0:00 sendmail: accepting connections
smmsp     1861  0.0  0.0  5208 1692 ?        Ss   Jul13   0:00 sendmail: Queue runner@01:00:00 for /var/spool/clientmqueue
root 27423  0.0  0.0  4992  640 pts/0    S+   09:03   0:00 grep sendmail
Make sure sendmail is running.

I'm glad you found the answer to your problem.
