    Looking for a highly recommended source of information on sendmail


    Can anyone recommend a good tutorial or documentation source for
    sendmail. As a matter of urgency, I need to be able to prove that
    emails are leaving the server OK. Some are as they are being received.
    Some might not be as they are not being received.

    I thought I identified the logs used by entering grep mail /etc/syslog.conf
    but they are all empty!
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
