Sendmail, stat=Deferred: Connection Refused #2
well I got it working
but not sure why
the iMac came with a default /etc/mail/submit.cf file
i don't know what that is for
but actually I dont have that file on my ibook
but I did see the other day on the web to link that file to sendmail.cf
ln -s /etc/mail/sendmail.cf /etc/mail/submit.cf
i renamed the old submit.cf to submit.cf.old
and now I can deliver mail with or with sendmail running in -bd mode
anyone know what submit.cf is for?

I'm setting up a newly configured server from the hosting provider, and the
sendmail file is in
I'm not sure why sendmail.sendmail is repeating. Is there some
configuration remaining or do I just need to rename the file to sendmail?

&...Mail::Sendmail cannot connect to localhost but the mail command can
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.

I've been unsuccessful connecting to sendmail on any interface other than

server 2 is also running sendmail and is configured as a backup mx for
domains hosted on server 1 (mx records set properly).
Basically, server 2 is supposed to accept mail for serveral domains during

have added those domains to /etc/relay-domains on server 2. In addition to
that I have added those domains to /etc/mailertable as follows:

Turns out there was a very simple solution. Sendmail wasn't listening to any
other network interfaces due to how it was being launched, rather than a
firewall or configuration problem. The solution evaded me because SuSE
doesn't document their Sendmail implementation very well, but it's obvious
from SuSE's init script for Sendmail.

George...Sendmail refuses to send mail
only recently have I started using sendmail (8.11) on a RedHat 7.1 linux machine.
Up till now I've only been able to receive e-mail (both local and remote).
Sending e-mail to a valid e-mail address stops with a dsn 4.0.0 and "no route to host", even though I can ping the domain in the e-mail address. Traceroute however is unable to come up with an answer.
What do I do wrong? Any place I can find a clear description of what is happening?
Thanks in advance!

I've been running sendmail 8.12.5 on Redhat 8 for close to a year
without any problems. This sendmail installation doesn't do anything
besides take e-mails that are generated by PHP scripts and forward
them to the appropriate address. The server resides in a DMZ with a
real-world IP and is firewalled on port 25 to prevent any kind of open
relaying or other mischief.
About a week ago, sendmail suddenly stopped delivering messages. The
problem seems to be that the e-mails are attempting to be sent using
the real world IP instead of localhost. In fact, all of the old log
entries were...Sendmail Deferred and times out with mail server

I have configured Trendmicro InterScan within a sendmail sandwich on
SuSE 7.2: The front end sendmail (smpt1) listens on port 25, does
relay checking end sends the message via a special local mailer
(esmtpvw) and mailertable to InterScan listening on port 18000. After
mail scanning InterScan sends the message to the backend sendmail
(smpt2) on port 19000 which distributes the mail to the different mail
After changing the DNS servers in the network configuration and a
reboot the front end sendmail complained for incoming messages with:

what is happening is as follows:
Application on box A generates mail (for the users, who can be from
anywhere) forwards it to box B which sends it out.
The box A is forwarding mail to box B, only for the users of the
domain, ie if there is a user is having a gmail id the mail is NOT
forwarded from box A ----> box B.
If i do a nslookup on gmail on box A it resolves properly.
