Sendmail warning


Dear friends,
I am bit new for linux env , i have problem in sendmail server not exactly problem, its working fine but only warning. If i pass command #mailq in console then following lines come out as warnings.

[visu@anakin Datas]$ mailq
Msmtp: Warning: first argument in [IPC] mailer must be TCP or FILE
Mesmtp: Warning: first argument in [IPC] mailer must be TCP or FILE
Msmtp8: Warning: first argument in [IPC] mailer must be TCP or FILE
Mrelay: Warning: first argument in [IPC] mailer must be TCP or FILE
Mesmtprem: Warning: first argument in [IPC] mailer must be TCP or FILE
/var/spool/mqueue is empty
Total requests: 0

Would be fine if anyone give me an idea to remove this warning.

Thanx in advance,

regards,
visu

edit /etc/sendmail.cf or /etc/mail/sendmail.cf .....
go to line Msmtp ... change A=IPC to A=TCP $h
that should work

Hello zapperabhi,
Thanks a lot, its works fine without warning message.

and also i have one more warning message when i pass newaliases command, i hope its bcs of old version.

[root@anakin root]# newaliases
Warning: .cf file is out of date: sendmail 8.12.9 supports version 10, .cf file
is version 8
/etc/aliases: 68 aliases, longest 1014 bytes, 1842 bytes total
[root@anakin root]#

any simple solution to avoid this warning message ?. bcs if i place new version of sendmail.cf , sendmail makes me problem.

thanks in advance
