Could be the same problem I posted about this morning.

Check your maillog - do a grep for "locktype"

If its says "flock" you need to change the "Lock Type" directive in

Change it to

Lock Type = posix

8.13 uses posix and according to the comments in the conf 8.12 and older
used flock.

Subject: Sendmail Upgrade, other problem

After the sendmail upgrade to 8.13.6, some of my messages come with no body,
and the text "<<< No Message Collected >>>" in the body... They appear twice
in the users inbox, one with this body, and one ok message (with the
original body).

In Mailwatch this messages appear with two times the header info. Very

Anybody facing the same problem, or maybe could give some ideas of what's
causing that?
