On i386 -current cvs updated and built yesterday, and with pkgsrc
newly updated yesterday, I installed the new sendmail with smmsp.  
I am using a modem and a dial-up internet connection.  When I 
write mail off line smmsp queues the mail in /var/spool/clientmqueue, 
which is the spool directory specified in  My 
specifies the queue directory as /var/spool/mqueue.  When I write 
mail while on line the mail is queued in /var/spool/mqueue.  When I 
issue the command "sendmail -q -v" only the mail in 
/var/spool/mqueue is sent.  I get warning notices from the mailer 
daemon about DNS timeouts respecting the mail in clientmqueue.  

Are there supposed to be two differently named spool files?  Do I 
need to tell smmsp about DNS?  Am I missing something else?
