Description of problem:
When I boot up the computer it comes up normal but sendmail does not work for
e-mail. Trying to test a new rpm of sendmail I got it started working properly.
Later I discovered any rpm of senmail works if I start it manually after booting up.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot up the computer
2.Send an e-mail
3.use #sendmail -q to send the e-mail

Actual Results:  The manual #sendmail -q does send out all the stored mail.

Expected Results:  Sendmail should send out any mail it gets.

Comment 1 Karl F. Larsen 2002-12-04 22:12:11 UTC
        It is now apparent that there is nothing wrong with Sendmail or
Postfix. What is wrong is my inability to understand either system. This is
compounded by the Red Hat manuals which are mutually counter-dict-ave. The
Mail Transport Agent Switcher does not work as shown in the manual. When I
use #/sbin/service postfix stop it fails. I'm convinced that some
interaction between postfix and sendmail account for my problem. I have
wasted 3 days of work trying to fix this problem and must now just quit.
