Sorry, never updated to this Version.
I am still using this one:

Sendmail version 8.12.6, config V10/Berkeley

and i guess, if it would not use flock, it would never work. Or am i wrong
with that?

But it works let´s say about 95% for all incoming mails.
Only sometimes it just does this strange misbehaviour :(

i even tried a file-system check..which said, there are no problems with
my discs :(

any kind of help would be great

Thanks in advance
