Jules and everyone,
I am working on a new setup using MailScanner 4.59.4.
I have configured sendmail to have several queue groups
Where 3 differently configured MailScanner setups process the different
queues into the outbound queue.
I got loads of errors along the lines of...
NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): QueuePath /var/spool/mqueue/internal not subpath
of QueueDirectory /var/spool/mqueue/outbound/
Having checked the MailScanner code, Sendmail.pm, in line 715, sendmail
is called with a -OQueueDirectory=$queue. I've commented this line out
and all works well but I'd like to ask your opinion if there is a
better, or more permanent fix, and would that be more appropriate.
Please keep in mind that upgrades are fairly rare here and we already
change a good number of bits and pieces from their normal states.
Also, what was the reasoning for calling sendmail in that way in the
