### No local mailer defined / QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set (they are!!)

• Email
• Follow

I'm a situation way over my head. I'm trying to get sendmail 8.11.6
running on a Redhat 7.3 box. Everytime I start up sendmail I see the
following errors:

Nov  6 07:37:01 admin sendmail[13582]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): No local
mailer defined
Nov  6 07:37:01 admin sendmail[13582]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set
failed: 1
Nov  6 07:37:02 admin sendmail[13585]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): No local
mailer defined
Nov  6 07:37:02 admin sendmail[13585]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set
N

However the host is in the hosts file with the right IP address.
There is an Mlocal line in sendmail.cf:

Mlocal,         P=/usr/bin/procmail, F=lsDFMAw5:/|@qSPfhn9,
S=EnvFromL/HdrFromL, R=EnvToL/HdrToL,
T=DNS/RFC822/X-Unix,
A=procmail -Y -a $h -d$u

and there is a queue directory:

O QueueDirectory=/var/spool/mqueue

That seems to have a leading space.

Maybe you look at the wrong sendmail.cf file?

sendmail -bt -d0.13 < /dev/null

will show you the one that is used.

I just checked that, there is no space in the config. Just a
copy/paste issue.

Another detail. This machine has postfix running on it right now. The
ISP
only supports sendmail, so thats what the client wants me to do. The
source from which postfix was compiled was on the machine. I could see
nothing in the Makefile, or other scripts that would help me uninstall
postfix. Risking it I decided to install sendmail over postfix, using
rpm.
I'm going to reverse engineer the install script and remove postfix
properly and try this again tonight.

Will I be able to run the above command (sendmail -bt etc) while
postfix is running? I would like to have an MTA running at all times
if possible.

Thanks again for the help.

I don't get this statement. It sounds like a lot of nonsense to me in
that postfix is perfectly capable of speaking smtp. Perhaps your ISP has
sendmail specific requirements such as AUTH that you haven't mentioned.
I think it would help if you tells.

Please have a look at ntsysv. THis is one of a number of programs that
help you control what startsup at boot time. I recommend it because I
know it works on RH73. Try it. Space toggles the selection, arrows take
you up and down the list and tab enables the exit buttons.

Do run this after you complete your install so that you can enable
sendmail and disable postfix at the same time.

If you give it the path to the sendmail binary, not to the
postfix substitute: yes.

The latest update is that I completely removed postfix by studying its
install script and writing another script that removed all files
installed. Then I re installed sendmail and updated the senmail.cf
file..

Things worked a lot better. Sendmail startup successfully, and was
routing incoming and outbound mail. However the above error messages
still are in the maillog, only now there is one more line:

Nov  7 15:37:00 admin sendmail[3728]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
/etc/sendmail.cf: line 342: readcf: option u: unknown user mail: No
such file or directory

That settle the issue of reading the right sendmail.cf file I think.
Line 342 of the cf file seems unrelated to the issue:

O SuperSafe=True

Like I said earlier inbound and outbound mail, and even AUTH is
working fine. What do these errors mean though - whats broken? And of
course what else can I try to fix it?

Thanks for the help Claus!

I agree with you that postfix is as capable for the task at hand.. in
fact it is even working with AUTH (sasldb). However this is not a
decision made by me, or something I can change.

Event localization with ode | Error message: The ODE option 'Events' must be set to 'on' | 'off'
I just lost 1h solving a stupid issue and want to share my solution: The ode-solvers are called with a function handle that compute f'(t,y). Suppose we have a function file get_df that does the job. Then both syntax are fine ode45(@get_df,[0 tmax],y0,options) ode45('get_df',[0 tmax],y0,options) The trouble is that for the second syntax, the internal variable FcnHandlesUsed is set to zero, and the event localization routines get confused.

[biblatex] Set option locally for \fullcite
I am using biblatex for my Ph.D. thesis. I have used the "firstinits=true" option. However, I have a short list of publications built using \fullcite. For these specific \fullcite's I would like "firstinits=false". Is there any way to achieve this?

Hi, since working/developing with tcl, I often had the need to open a lot of files with the same fconfigure settings.

How do you set -XCMD option on EG Local Server?

(2) When I use FILENAME statement with a PIPE option: "ERROR: Insufficient authorization to access PIPE. ERROR: Error in the FILENAME statement." Apparently these messages are due to the -NOXCMD option being set.

Hello, I need some insight on the following question: how to define xkeyval boolean keys that are also understood as package options. Unless I have missed something, there is no convenient way to do that (in short, there is no \DeclareBoolOptionX macro). Until now, I've been using the following hack successfully (you can ignore the "void" part): % \begin{macro}{\@fxdeclarebooloptkey} % A boolean option-key'' is a boolean package option and macro key % argument as well.
