sendmail mail queue setup




I have SuSE9 running sendmail 8.12.10 Is there any way to setup the mail queues or sendmail to forward mail under 2MB big and queue the larger mail till a set time when a cron or something can send it on its way?

One way to achieve this is to run sendmail in "queue only" mode. (see deliveryMode option). Write a script to scan for big files and move it to a different directory (say /var/spool/mybigfilequeue).

Run two cron jobs to process the directories (/var/spool/mqueue and /var/spool/mybigfilequeue) at your specified times using "-q". See sendmail doc.


There might be a simpler way. Try asking in sendmail forum. You might get a reply from the guru (claus assman)
