I have configured sendmail 8.13.8 on Solaris 10. The issue is that after sendmail configuration, i found that many mail.local process are created & this hangs the server. Below is the config file sendmail.mc i used for configuration to relay messages to another server. I compiled this file & copied it to /etc/mail folder as sendmail.cf. After this i restarted sendmail. After couple of hours, many mail.local process are created
VERSIONID(`@(#)sendmail.mc 1.11 (Sun) 06/21/04')
R$* < @ $* .$m. > $* $#esmtp $@ $2.$m $: $1 < @ $2.$m. > $3
Now i am running a cron job temporarily to kill these process.
