set delay in Sendmail /var/spool/mqueue

Hi all,

I am using Sendmail 8.13 and getting problem of bounce mail from other servers coz of so many connection from sender.

that's why I want to set interval in sendmail so that /var/spool/mqueue will send 30 mails/second.

Is there any configuration setting in sendmail so we can do that as above?

Plz suggest .

Thanks,
MKS

Hi,
Check the sendmail.cf file
there is a option "CheckpointInterval"
You can use this option for that.


Thanks & Regards

Hi,

If you are using sendmail on RHEL then you may change it here

[root@example mqueue]# cat /etc/sysconfig/sendmail
DAEMON=yes
QUEUE=1h

Cheers
