NOQUEUE message

NOQUEUE message

Hello!

I'm getting the following message in the /var/adm/syslog/mail.log file...

NOQUEUE: Null connection for [ip address]

Is this a normal message indicating problems with the mail host?

Thanks a lot!

Re: NOQUEUE message

Yes if you not have the sendamail configurated.

Re: NOQUEUE message

You need to configure /etc/sendmail.cf and /etc/sendmail.cw
good luck.

Re: NOQUEUE message

Guys,

Thanks for pointing to a direction but configuration of sendmail is more complicated then just a simple host file modification as I can see. Most of the stuff in there is new to me. Any other references that would assist me in understanding what to modify?

Also, I'm kind of perplex since HP recommends to not touch this file except for 2 sections. Conflict of information. Never configured sendmail before. Please be more explicit in your comments.

Thanks a lot!

Re: NOQUEUE message

Yes, this is normal and should be expected.

It just means that the remote SMTP relay connected and QUIT without sending a message, usually by probing using VRFY and EXPN. If a message was started (MAIL FROM), then NOQUEUE would be replaced with a message ID.

Re: NOQUEUE message

Hi,

Here are a few of pointers that may help.

Configure /etc/mail/sendmail.cw and insert at least this at the bottom.

localhost
system.domain.com (insert your system and domain name.



Set up your aliases file in /etc/mail/aliases

sysadm: user@domain.com

bounce aliases, by issuing
newaliases

/etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 10.10.10.10 (your ip address for your nameserver)
domain yourdomain.com (Your domain name)

/etc/nsswitch.conf should be configured something like this, depending on how you have your DNS, reverse them if your DNS is pointed to first.
hosts: files [NOTFOUND=continue UNAVAIL=return TRYAGAIN=return]dns [NOTFOUND=continue UNAVAIL=return TRYAGAIN=return]

You need to bounce your sendmail daemon, like this.

/sbin/rc1/K460sendmail stop
/sbin/rc2.d/S540sendmail start

Try and send yourself mail
elm -s "subject" user@domain.com

Re: NOQUEUE message

Thanks so much for the input.
However I am still receiving the error and assuming it's normal.
Anyone else's input is greatly welcome.
This forum is awesome!
