delayed send of emails
Posted on 2004-08-30
Using solaris 2.7 and sendmail
/etc/init.d $ echo \$Z | /usr/lib/sendmail -bt -d0
Compiled with: DNSMAP LOG MAP_REGEX MATCHGECOS MIME7TO8 MIME8TO7
NAMED_BIND NDBM NETINET NETUNIX NIS NISPLUS PIPELINING SCANF
mails sent with mailx and mail are being deplayed significantly, however mails sent using pine are being sent immediately.
Here is an header
nothing major was noticed while running it in the debug mode ( however Iam not sure if I had the right flags)
The P value indicates the priority, is that the cause?
/etc/init.d $ /usr/lib/sendmail -oQ/var/spool/mqueue
can not chdir(/var/spool/mqueue/): Permission denied
Aug 30 10:34:58 wilma sendmail: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): can not chdir(/var/spool/mqueue/): Permission denied
Program mode requires special privileges, e.g., root or TrustedUser.
How do I force the emails and how do I fix the delay in sending the email?
