Unhappy


a number of times when i've installed redhat 6.2 or 7.1 sendmail has soon stopped starting on bootup... just hanging there for ever. The same happens, as you might expect, when running sendmail or newaliases from the command line.

anyone out there able to help?

try starting sendmail with the -d(debug) option and see what errormessages come tru.

You may want to look at my online copy of O'Reilly's "Sendmail" at http://unspawn.hobbiton.org/sendmail/
