I often find many errors DEFERRED
Posted on 2001-06-04
I have many errors in /var/spool/mqueue what can I do?
I use solaris 2.8. There are a lot of messages Deferred what does it means? How can I fix it?
1) Is it good idea to do
# cd /var/spool/mqueue
# rm *
or # cp /dev/null /var/spool/mqueue or
is it the same?
2)I can see running
ps -ef |grep sendmail
5 processes sendmail are running. Do I have to kill any of them and let only one running?
3) Is it any way to debug my server if it is ok or is it
a problem of my dialup users.
4) If I kill the unique process of sendmail how can I reread the configuration file maybe
#pkill -HUP sendmail is it ok?
5) If I decide not to delete the file from mqueue. Is there any command to tell to sendmail to try itself later in order to resend these mails?
