Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71907
mailq doesn't check clientmqueue
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:40 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):
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.
/var/spool/mqueue is empty
Total requests: 0
the unsent mail should be listed as unsent.
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.
