Full Version: Sendmail On Vanilla Rh9
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I've scoured the Internet for answers but none presented have helped.

I've installed a vanilla version of Red Hat Linux 9 plus security updates. When starting Sendmail i get the following:

No local mailer defined
QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set

This happens no matter what I do. The sendmail.cf file exists in /etc/mail and I can make changes to the sendmail.mc file and create new sendmail.cf files until I bleed. No changes I've seen so far have worked. It should be running off the line.

It should be set up to only send out mail from the localhost only. It's a hosting box so no incoming mail is allowed...yet so all incoming should be blocked by the ipchains.

If anyone has run into this issue, please let me know. I have 3 boxes now that have the same problem and have no clue why it's happening. Here's the basic sendmail.mc file I'm using.

you need to change the following line in your sendmail.mc file
MAILER(local)dnl

to

MAILER(procmail)dnl
