My 1.6.2 install just has this :
sendmail=NO sendmail_flags="-bd -q30m"
Which I already have, and have set as follows :
sendmail=YES sendmail_flags="-bd -q15m"
but that doesn't kick off the msp processing.
Does anyone have a more complete set of arguments
that they use as an example? I'm using sendmail 8.13.1 from
pkgsrc (thanks Adrian!). I'm not too sure if sendmail will
work with multiple daemons starting from rc.conf like this?
At the moment I have two daemons running, one started from
root 3443 0.0 0.5 1092 1432 ?? Ss Thu09AM 0:05.53 sendmail:
and one from my manual kickoff of the msp processor :
smmsp 17230 0.0 0.5 956 1268 ?? Ss 9:46AM 0:00.00 sendmail:
Attempts to start the MSP queue processor from the same rc.conf
line failed, I tried the following two options :
#sendmail=YES sendmail_flags="-bd -q15m -qp5m"
#sendmail=YES sendmail_flags="-bd -q15m -Ac"
Neither of which started the MSP processor (oddly enough!)
