Tell us more about your sendmail config. Are you listening to what port?
are you delivering local, or routing on?
I would first suggest running sendmail only, without mailscanner to see if
your machine/configuration is reliable.
Here is my output for you to compare :
ps -ef | grep sendmail
root 1715 1 0 20:06 ? 00:00:00 sendmail: accepting
root 1718 1 0 20:06 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/sendmail -q15m
root 1836 1296 0 20:38 pts/0 00:00:00 grep sendmail
netstat -anp|grep ":25"
tcp 0 0 192.168.0.4:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN

Please respond to
I could once at once after installation start mailscanner and send the
message containing test eicar.com file. I have received correct response of
the program both warning messages to the sender and receiver. After that I
tried install the perl module net:: ftp, as for me was not worked
script /mcafee/autoupdate. Also I still rebooted the server.
Since then I do not see that mailscanner functions correctly. I try to send
the same test file and I receive it as not of past any anti-virus
processing. To what I have paid attention that when I run mailscanner:
[ root at host /root]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/mailscanner start
[ root at host /root]# ps -ef | grep sendmail
root 3180 1 0 10:41? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -ODeliver
root 3182 1 0 10:41? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/sendmail -q15m
But when in some minutes I again issue the command:
[root at host /root]# ps -ef | grep sendmail,
I receive only:
Whether I do not know has this ratio to my problem or and be owes
How in general to carry out correctly diagnostics of my fault?
