Description Oliver Schulze L. 2003-02-12 22:34:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 Description of problem: It would be nice, if the sendmail service have the reload option. So, if you change your /etc/mail/access or /etc/mail/virtusertable files, you can issue a command like this: # service sendmail reload to make the changes take effect Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. service sendmail reload 2. reload is not a recognized option 3. Additional info: This will help a mail server response, since you don't need to make your mailserver unavailable for a couple of seconds or even kill existing sendmail processes when you change a simple line in your config file.

Note that you don't need to reload sendmail to have it recognize changes to most database files. Doing a 'make ' in /etc/mail will enable changes to things like the virtusertable and access. Running 'newaliases' will activate changes to /etc/aliases. Note that my patch does not try to rebuild databases (I'm now rethinking not doing that in my patch). BTW: I think that the reason why your patch was marked a duplicate of mine may be that mine is for an active version of RH and/or includes a patch.
