sendmail - mail stays in queue...


Hi,

I installed and configured sendmail, but the mail doesn't get sent, it stays in the sendmail queue.

# sendmail -d0 < /dev/null
Version 8.12.8
Compiled with: DNSMAP HESIOD HES_GETMAILHOST LDAPMAP LOG MAP_REGEX
MATCHGECOS MILTER MIME7TO8 MIME8TO7 NAMED_BIND NETINET NETINET6
NETUNIX NEWDB NIS PIPELINING SASL SCANF STARTTLS TCPWRAPPERS
USERDB USE_LDAP_INIT

============ SYSTEM IDENTITY (after readcf) ============
(short domain name) $w = test
(canonical domain name) $j = test.com
(subdomain name) $m = com
(node name) $k = test.com
========================================================

Recipient names must be specified





when i do mailq:

i9LDCKHl005092 20 Thu Oct 21 15:12 <root@test.com>

<recip@otherdomain.com>

I also got an MX record in my DNS www.test.com zone.

But nothing happens, I tried it with several recipients (myself on other domains), I never get the message. Can anybody help?

Cheers,

E-Rick
