Thanks for your reply. Yes, I am running the queue runner (at least, I
can see it in the output of "ps aux"). I saw the comments to which you
I am writing this off line. We'll see if it goes out to you. . . .
BTW, I used to live in Boulder, and, during August in Boston, I envy
the mountains and the lack of humidity where you are, in Golden,

} Are you running a "queue runner"? My guess is not. It's possible for
} various reasons for mail processed by the mail submission program to be
} left in /var/spool/clientmqueue rather than immediately forwarded on to
} the sendmail daemon (which spools into /var/spool/mqueue and sends the
} mail on to the outside world). To deal with that, it's generally necessary
} to run a queue runner that periodically processes the queue (clientqueue).
} See /etc/defaults/rc.conf for relevant comments and /etc/rc.d/smmsp, which
} is the startup script for the queue runner.
