sendmail fails to deliver locally submitted email
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
I noted that emails sent via squirrelmail to local users get
lost. So I looked at the problem more closely and it looks
like sendmail fails to deliver any locally submitted email
to local users.
Email from outside are delivered just fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
I tried to send an email to a local user using
a) telnet localhost 25
The mail is accepted by sendmail and corresponding log entries are written:
Mar 9 20:24:18 keen sendmail: h29JOH3I010823: from=root, size=30,
class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<200303091924.h29JOH3I010823@keen.esi.ac.at>,
Mar 9 20:24:18 keen sendmail: h29JOH3I010823: to=gerald, ctladdr=root
(0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=local, pri=30026, dsn=2.0.0,
However, the mail never shows up in the mailbox of the user!? Moreover,
the mailq is empty, so it is not hanging somewhere.
This strange. I just did
rpm -e --nodeps sendmail
rm -rf /etc/mail
rpm -i sendmail-8.12.8-1.80.i386.rpm
copied my config files back and now it works just fine!?
I don't get it....
