Ran into some recent problems with my server and after some head scratching thought maybe I should post before I end up making things worse:>
None the less the last few weeks I have been getting these kernel null pointer errors. The only thing that brought them to my attention to be honest was an employee was complaining that she sent her daughter one email and she would receive 30 or so of the same. I had updated GLIBC yesterday in process of updating sendmail at which time I started to see this less. Here is what I have currently:
I finally got everyone off the server long enough to upgrade Sendmail yet again. I am now running Sendmail 8.13.3 (got the packaged from slackware.com out of the 10.1 bin) and I am still having the exact same problem as above. At this point I have no idea where to go from here. I have though about recompiling the kernel (been running the same one for over a year now without incident until now) but wanted to ask one more time if anyone else had a clue about what my problem could be.
I have noticed that this only happens when someone sends an email to multiple users (greater then 5) who are not on our system. Basically those messages are always shown as status "Sending" and if they are in the que and tell sendmail to force deliver it will give me these errors.
Thanks a head of time to anyone who posts.
