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 submit.cf. My sendmail.cf
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?
