Scott mentioned that maybe the incoming and out going sendmail instances
were writing to the same pid. If this is correct, how can I fix it?
"Perhaps the two separate instances of Sendmail (incoming and outgoing)
are trying to write to the same pid. Is there a way to make one of the
processes write to a different pid?"
