Followed the same instructions that Shawn Iverson sent in reply to this...listed below. From my understanding, the ms-sendmail script is a MailScanner specific script to start sendmail.  In any case, I have done this, to no avail...


systemctl stop sendmail
systemctl stop sm-client
systemctl disable sendmail
systemctl disable sm-client

systemctl enable ms-sendmail
systemctl start ms-sendmail

Please show us those scripts.


Normal people think "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
Engineers think "If it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet".
