Hi,
      We have IBM Websphere Application Server installed on Red hat linux and we have several applications running on it. So the problem is, that one of the application which was deployed on the websphere instance has a feature of sending mail to the student who ever completes a course. So what happened is that there was a OS reboot last week and after server reboot the send mail thing won't work. A program called Flux sends a mail with an attachment which it is supposed to send along with the mail. But now it is not sending the attachment along the mail. So what i think is there is some process which gets stopped when the REd hat Linux is rebooted which has to be started manually.  I do not see any Error message in the log files. so any body has any clue about this issue  please let me know. Any idea aboout the mail Server ? or SMTP  server ? I am not that good at Linux  . Please let me know.

Thank you.

If its sending the mail, then the mailing system is working fine.

You might have a look in /etc/init.d/

and see what startup processes are there and then check if they are running. Obviously all of the processes shouldn't necessarily be running...but it might give you an idea.

The command:

chkconfig --list

will show all processes that start up in each run level.

This agian may help you identify the missing process.
