rejecting connections on daemon MTA: load average
I found several of these entries in my logs on RedHat AS 2.1 box. The
server runs commercial webserver services. Sendmail is configured to
bind to localhost only so it is not accessible externally. Looking at
/var/log/maillog gives me no hint that the load average had been
reached at all with emails. During the whole day only a few dozens
were sent out.
Am I facing an attack maybe from a formmail.pl or so? Or are there
different reasons other than a mail flood to print sendmail such an

My sendmail (has been working great for 4 years) stopped sending mail
out yesterday, and I find this error message in /var/log/mail/info
sendmail [ 1139]: rejecting connections on daemon MTA: load average 28
Restarting sendmail didn't help, but restarting the whole Linux OS did
and now it is working. I notice at the same time there were heavy spam
attacks, most of that taken however by the Barracuda mail filter.
This server has around 1000 mail boxes, quite busy, but getting very
old. The sendmail version is 8.12.9, on linux 2.4.21

I have a script that uses Mail::Sendmail, this script works just fine
in 4 different boxes (RedHat and Solaris).
Nevertheless, there is this Solaris machine where it doesn't work, and
this is the error I get in the $Mail::Sendmail::error variable:
connect to localhost failed (Connection refused)
The thing that puzzles me, is that in the same machine, the mail
command works just fine.

just as Mail::Sendmail does.

2. Re...Connecting to 9401-150
I have a CD "Client Access for OS/400 Family". It is for DOS, OS/2 & WIN
1. Will this CD work with Win XP Home?
2. Can I run a crossover cable from my PC to the 2723 ethernet?
3. Can someone "hold my hand" & help get me started with connecting the PC?
Last time I had an as/400 was in the early '90's Model B60 if anyone still
remembers those beasts. We only used twinax at the time. I am an RPG
programmer and wanted to get my feet wet again!

Urgently you should upgrade your system, not only sendmail! You have

Hello to everyone!
I'm getting stuck on sendmail after playing around on a running system... (I
swear, I'll never do this again!)
I'm running a RH8 box with sendmail. After installing postfix and switching
the MTA through Redhat's switchmail app, taking a look at it and switching
back to sendmail the same way, I cannot send mails anymore!
Taking a look in the mail log revealed this after trying to send a mail from
admin to root (which should be redirected to admin due to an alias):

A 150 uses Client Access console, unless you have TwinAx. This is
functionality in Client Access 3.1 and 3.2, possibly in CA Express as
well. At one point in time CA console was replaced by OpsConsole.

This morning an Outlook user came to me and said they could not send
mail. The error message indicated it had timed out "waiting for a
response from the sending (SMTP) server".
A look at sendmail's maillog indicated the following whenever a client
connected to send mail.
