[SOLVED] sendmail delivery problems
I have been messing with a broken sendmail system for the last two days now. The mail will send out no problem, but it does not got into users mailboxes. The server used to have mailscanner and spamassassin on it but something there broke and I removed them as we did not need them anymore anyway, we are scanning with as outside service now.
I have changed the sendmail.mc file from using procmail to mail.local and that did not help. I really guess I don't know what I am doing.
I see errors in the maillog files: "can't create output". But I have set all permissions of the mail folders (/var/spool/mail/username) to 777.
here is my sendmail.mc file:
divert(0)dnl define('LOCAL_MAILER_PATH', /usr/bin/mail.local) dnl # dnl # include(`/usr/share/sendmail-cf/m4/cf.m4')dnl VERSIONID(`setup for Red Hat Linux')dnl OSTYPE(`linux')dnl dnl # dnl # define(`confDEF_USER_ID',``8:12'')dnl dnl define(`confAUTO_REBUILD')dnl define(`confTO_CONNECT', `1m')dnl define(`confTRY_NULL_MX_LIST',true)dnl define(`confDONT_PROBE_INTERFACES',true)dnl dnl define(`PROCMAIL_MAILER_PATH',`/usr/bin/mail') define(`ALIAS_FILE', `/etc/aliases')dnl define(`STATUS_FILE', `/var/log/mail/statistics')dnl define(`UUCP_MAILER_MAX', `2000000')dnl define(`confUSERDB_SPEC', `/etc/mail/userdb.db')dnl define(`confPRIVACY_FLAGS', `authwarnings,novrfy,noexpn,restrictqrun')dnl define(`confAUTH_OPTIONS', `A')dnl dnl define(`confMAX_MESSAGE_SIZE', `52428800')dnl dnl # define(`confTO_IDENT', `0')dnl FEATURE(`no_default_msa',`dnl')dnl FEATURE(`smrsh',`/usr/sbin/smrsh')dnl FEATURE(`mailertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/mailertable.db')dnl FEATURE(`virtusertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable.db')dnl FEATURE(redirect)dnl FEATURE(relay_entire_domain)dnl # allows relaying of mail on our domain FEATURE(always_add_domain)dnl FEATURE(use_cw_file)dnl FEATURE(use_ct_file)dnl dnl # dnl # dnl FEATURE(local_mail,`',`procmail -Y -a $h -d $u') FEATURE(`access_db',`hash -T<TMPF> -o /etc/mail/access.db')dnl dnl FEATURE(`blacklist_recipients') dnl # FEATURE(`dnsbl')dnl EXPOSED_USER(`root')dnl dnl # dnl # FEATURE(`accept_unresolvable_domains')dnl dnl # dnl # LOCAL_DOMAIN(`grandproductsinc.com')dnl LOCAL_DOMAIN(`localhost.localdomain')dnl dnl # dnl # MASQUERADE_AS(`grandproductsinc.com')dnl dnl # dnl # well dnl # FEATURE(masquerade_entire_domain)dnl dnl # MAILER(smtp)dnl MAILER(local)dnl dnl MAILER(cyrusv2)dnl
I don't have a working yum as the system is too old now for fedora to have any files on their update repositories. I don't know why, it is only a couple of years old.
what other information can I give you to get some clue as to what is wrong here.
Thanks for any help anyone can give.

ok, scrap this query. I just got another mail server running using postfix and dovecot. Now I need to know if I can get the old email from the queue into the new system?
