Description Andy Herrero 2002-12-18 13:46:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; T312461)

Description of problem:
/etc/init.d/sendmail ignores the DAEMON-variable set 
in /etc/sysconfig/sendmail. It is hard-scripted to always
run with the "-bd" argument.

Red Hat 8.0:
daemon /usr/sbin/sendmail -bd \
       $([ -n "$QUEUE" ] && echo -q$QUEUE)

Snatched from RH7.0:
daemon /usr/sbin/sendmail $([ "$DAEMON" = yes ] && echo -bd) \
       $([ -n "$QUEUE" ] && echo -q$QUEUE)

I do not want the daemon-mode on this particular machine, thus I want only to 
flush the queue every now and then.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set "DAEMON=no" in /etc/sysconfig/sendmail
2. # service sendmail restart
3. Verify that the daemon is listening to tcp/25 inspite of the config.
