Re: For sendmail start

Shalom,

Most likely there are problems with how you built sendmail.

1) Configure /etc/rc.config.d/sendmail or mailsrvrs first variable to zero.

2) swremove the depot version of sendmail.

3) Then try yours. You may need to re-install. mailx should work normally.

After that fails, either fix your compile or remove your sendmail. Then swinstall the latest sendmail from http://software.hp.com

You can do ANYTHING you want with the depot version if you learn how to use sendmail.mc macros. I suggest http://www.sendmail.org as a good place to learn sendmail.mc macros.
