    [sendmail] stucked in /var/spool/clientmqueue


    hi all,

    I've just installed mimedefang + spamassassin + sendmail + uvscan into my experiment server running CentOS and,

    I've got milter running, make it quarantine the virus mail and send me a notice, but the notice is stucked in /var/spool/clientmqueue (after some googling) and the only way i can do is to flush it manually (either service sendmail restart or sendmail -Ac -q)

    is there anyway to make sendmail flush "automatically" whenever mail enters /var/spool/clientmqueue? (besides cron'ing sendmail -Ac -q)

    Thanks.

    This doesn't really answer your question but ....

    When sendmail starts, it can take a -q flag to determine how frequently it processes the queues, usually an hour. Restart sendmail with, eg, -q15m to process the queues every 15 minutes. Defaults are set in /etc/sysconfig/sendmail.
