   It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance, Vasily.

   After having run several large sendmail-based mail servers in the  
1990s and been nearly driven to insanity as a result, I moved both my  
network and that of my employer to Postfix some years ago, and swore  
never again to touch sendmail.  I changed jobs recently, and I'm now  
replacing several large and very old sendmail-based mail servers with  
Postfix.  Unfortunately, I'm not yet ready to replace this particular  
one (it's a few machines down the list) but I have to keep it running  
in the meantime.  It is nothing short of infuriating.

   I'm sorry that I cannot offer any advice toward the solution of  
your problem.  I have used a great many Multias over the years, but  
none recently, and sadly those bits seem to have rotted in my  
brain...perhaps as a result of exposure.
