    How to disable sendmail so that it won't get started up?


    Hi all,

    Can any one tell me how can i diable a service from automatically starting up automatically at the system start up?

    Particularly sendmail.

    During startup RH9 at the sendmail it is stopping and not continuing. So i am going to interactive startup and stopping the sendmail.

    Any body help me.!

    to let it start up at boot time again:

    Code:
    chkconfig --add sendmail
    and to see if it is on or off for each run level:
    Code:
    chkconfig --list sendmail
