Sendmail repeates messages

Why sendmail could repeats messages ( in /var/log/messages a lot of line " mail last message repeated 115 times ). Mail queue ( mailq ) is empty. All messages are properly delivered.

Hmm, I believe that there is a misunderstanding. The line
"xxx last message repeated n times" is to read that xxx stands for the machine name and not for a command (at least on DEC, HP and SUN). I assume that your machine has the name mail or at least it's one of its aliases. Check in the messages file before the "... repeated ..." line for the real error message.

If you come back with more questions, please specify machine type and operating system.

Hope this helps,
