With so little information, it's impossible to help you.
How do you define "huge"?
How long do you wait?
What's in your mail logs?

The sender didn't complete a particular phase of the smtp protocol.
Possibly completed the helo xxxxx.xxx but not the mail from:, or
neither. Basically it means they hung up on you. Telnet to your mailer
and experiment with incomplete stanzas, begining with helo..., mail
from:..., rcpt to:..., data...
and drop the connection before completing each stanza. Bonus points for
using log level 15 or greater.

I don't think stock Sendmail can do this. You are asking to modify the
contents of a message, not the envelope, which is what Sendmail usually
I'd say that you could write a milter to do this, or an SMTP proxy that
would do this in between Sendmail and the apparently confused MTA.

Yes, time/time is an integer. If you need more precision than integer than you can do something like this as an example...

That's essentially what I did. Thanks for the confirmation.
My concern is that time has the potential of being much larger than an
integer can hold, but then it would have a lot more precision than a
real can hold either. I guess it is best to do time math in the time
domain until you need to convert it to something else, like a trig
function, e.g. sin(pi*1e-9*real((2*freq*no...Times Returned by TIME()
I would have posted this on the Quicksilver group but couldn't find it.
We have a Quicksilver system that picks up files from a Windows eftpos
application. There have been some slowdowns in the process and we've
added some logging to identify the culprit. When the QS app detects a
file, it writes a log record using time derived from TIME(). It shells
out to a Clipper app which returns ADIR() data on the file. What we are
finding on the test PC (XP) is that the ADIR() time of the file is
approximately 2 seconds later than the TIME() value recorded.
Does anyone have an explanation?
Greetings to the -L,
We are thinking about using Sendmail/iX on our new 979-400 (running MPE/iX 6.5) which does not currently have it installed.
1) Do I only need the SMLHDB9(A) patch for 8.13.1 or must I get the SMLGDT8(A) and SMLHD15(A) patches and install 8.12.1 first?
2) I understand that Sendmail requires Syslog/iX. Where do I get it from?
3) Is there an 'Idiots Guide' to installing/configuring Sendmail and Syslog?

Nitro <nitro@dr-c...convert time string in UTC to time in local time
I'm guessing there is an easy way to do this but I keep going around
in circles in the documentation.
I have a time stamp that looks like this (corresponding to UTC time):
start_time = '2007-03-13T15:00:00Z'
I want to convert it to my local time.
start_time = time.mktime(time.strptime(start_time, '%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:
start_time -= time.timezone
This was working fine now, but if I do it for a date next week (such
as March 13th in the above example), it breaks because my local time

I am setting up a very secure Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server
version 4 update 6 server. My sendmail version is 8.13.1. My mail
server is a Windows 2003 Server with Exchange 2003 with its patches.
They are both on the same subnet. DNS is on and it will resolve the
mail server's name and IP. SSH, SCP, SFTP, and such tools are the
only networkable protocols on. NFS if off, MOUNTD is off, PORTMAP is
off, and such.
Until just recently sendmail was off on the RHEL server as part of the
hardening procedure. However part of the auditing requirements is for
a mail message to go out to some admin if certain events occur such as
"disk is full," "a panic occurred," "the system rebooted" etc.
So I will perhaps cut sendmail on and mitigate the risk as best as
So, this sounds dumb, but can you send mail without sendmail. I think
perhaps no, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
Secondly does anyone have a harden .mc file from which they could
share what they did? Of course you can fudge in phoney IP and names
to protect your secured environment.
Advice or insight do any of you have on securing sendmail is
appreciated? I want to avoid such things as promiscuous relays,
unqualified senders, etc etc. But if it must be ... it must be. :)

I would like to compare the speed of two algorithms
solving the same problem.
As far as I understood, the tic-toc command gives
the time difference between the beginning and the
end of the computation, without taking into account
the time spent by the processor doing something else.
I'm using a multi-processor multi-users machine and
the CPU time used by my process is not 100% and
is not constant. The measured speeds are fluctuating
so much that I can hardly conclude anything.
Is it possible to obtain realistic measurements of
the speed of my algorithms?

Sometimes, when the e-mail traffic gets particularly high (spammers seem to
like 6am EDT), my server can't cope -- every message gets checked by the
procmail-executed spamprobe, which takes a while.
Other spamprobe instances wait for the first one to finish (and release the
lock), leading to sendmail timing out occasionally logging:
timeout waiting for input from local during Draining Input
I'm not sure, but it seems, the procmail/spamprobe get BY-PASSED, when this
happens... Can I make sendmail return a temporary rejection to the relaying
server in such cases instead?

If you stored the time value as a DateTime data type, you can display it
in 24hr time using the Format() function:
