From one of our customers:
I have found that the startup script for sendmail is faulty. It doesnt
startup the sm-client correctly.
The sequence of events should be:
a) startup sendmail SMTP daemon
b) startup sendmail sm-client mail queue daemon
With the version provided in the RPM only the SMTP daemon is started and the
queue is never processed because using the daemon function it always finds
the SMTP sendmail daemon running already and therefore never starts the
sendmail sm-client daemon.
I have updated the /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail script (see attachment) to
correctly start the sm-client daemon as well.
Created attachment 77464 [details]
corrected sendmail script
This should be working fine with the current version, otherwise please open
up a new bugreport.
