I don't think there is supposed to be any way that you'd have two
sendmail precesses running against the queue ID on the input side of
sendmail (i.e., receiving a message from a remote MTA). But I believe
you can can more than one process dealing with the same message ID on
the delivery side. The question is whether this occurs before
MailScanner sees the message (which might indicate a sendmail mail
problem) or when MailScanner has finished with the message. Since I
don't know the hostname of this system it isn't clear to me which side
it occurs on. Does the maillog indicate that Mailscanner saw the message
ID before or after the sendmail error?
The instructions said to use Windows 98 or better, so I installed
