Description Douglas Kilpatrick 2002-08-20 01:00:51 EDT
Description of Problem:   
mailq did not report queued mail related mentioned in bug 71906.  The mail was  
queued in /var/spool/clientmqueue, but mailq only checked /var/spool/mqueue  
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):   
How Reproducible:   
Well, first cause some mail to get queued up waiting to get to the sendmail  
Steps to Reproduce:   
1. kill the sendmail daemon.  
2. use "mailx" to send some mail (externally?)  
3. use "mailq" to verify that the mail got sent and isn't hanging around for  
some weird reason.  
Actual Results:   
$ mailq  
/var/spool/mqueue is empty  
                Total requests: 0  
Expected Results:   
 the unsent mail should be listed as unsent.  
Additional Information:
Comment 1 Florian La Roche 2002-12-02 16:15:37 EST
mailq is only looking at the outgoing queue and you have to specify a
different queue dir to get more information on the clientqueue dir.

This change should be done upstream and not be modified only
for Red Hat Linux, so I am closing this bugreport here.
