Thumbs up Problem with mailq


Hai,

As I am not able to send mails of bigger size from my linux box, I Added this to my sendmail.mc file

Quote:
define(`confMAX_MESSAGE_SIZE', `10000000')dnl
And then executed the command

Quote:
m4 sendmail.mc > sendmail.cf
As the output is

Quote:
sendmail.mc:10: m4: cannot open `/usr/share/sendmail-cf/m4/cf.m4': No such file or directory,
I installed m4 using yum and executed the command successfully.

Then, I tried to restarted the sendmail service.

It stopped but did not start again and the output is

Quote:
Starting sendmail: 554 5.0.0 No local mailer defined
554 5.0.0 QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set
What might be the problem.
When i give the command "mailq" the output is

Quote:
No local mailer defined
QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set
Please help me to solve this problem.

Thanks,
Prakash.

This should be a default if Sendmail and all related packages are installed OK. Then it should set "O QueueDirectory=/var/spool/mqueue" when generating your config. If it doesn't then you simply haven't installed all packages cleanly and should tend to that.

Change config, regenerate it, then test. Else see your distro's Sendmail docs, Sendmail.org docs and say LHN's Configuring Linux Mail Servers?

Hai,

Quote:
define(`PROCMAIL_MAILER_PATH', `/usr/bin/procmail')dnl
FEATURE(local_procmail, `', `procmail -t -Y -a $h -d $u')dnl
MAILER(procmail)dnl
My /etc/mail/sendmail.mc consists all the variables similarly as mentioned above.

But the issue is when i give m4 sendmail.mc > sendmail.cf

The output is again,
Quote:
sendmail.mc:10: m4: cannot open `/usr/share/sendmail-cf/m4/cf.m4': No such file or directory
Please help me to resolve this.

Thanks,
Prakash.

I have mentioned in the first post of this thread as

Quote:
I installed m4 using yum and executed the command successfully.
sorry for that. It did not install properly and resulted in the error saying that

Quote:
sendmail.mc:10: m4: cannot open `/usr/share/sendmail-cf/m4/cf.m4': No such file or directory
Any help appreciated,
Prakash.

Hi,
The problem is solved. I did not install sendmial-cf package.
After installing all worked fine and now I am able to send the mails with a file as attachment almost equal to 10MB.

Thanks,
Prakash.
