After poring over sendmail manuals, docs, readme's and
Googling extensively have not found the answer to this
question. What configuration settings regulate the
outgoing e-mail volume?
Have recently upgraded from FreeBSD 4.3 to 6.1 (i.e., did
new install of 6.1 on clean disk, installed current
versions of applications and moved files - on same server
as before, same processors/memory, etc.). Installed
Sendmail 8.13 using standard sendmail.cf & FreeBSD.cf in
Have a PostgreSQL database of 20k+ opt-in subscribers to a
newsletter. When I invoke the sending routine, sendmail
immediately spawns 20 - 30 processes (all I can see via
"top"), quickly sends out 150 - 160 e-mails (via
/var/spool/mqueue) then no more new processes are spawned
and the system returns to a listening state. No error
message in /var/log/messages, no clues in
/var/log/maillog, nothing in the PostgreSQL logfile to
indicate why the e-mails stopped sending.
FreeBSD's sysctl shows more than ample system resources
(mbufs, files, etc). Netstat -m reveals no denied
requests. Is there another FreeBSD mechanism at play? A
sendmail configuration setting I can tweak to ensure all
e-mails are sent? Any other ideas on a cause of this
Have x-posted to the comp.mail.sendmail group with no
replies yet; sure would appreciate any help.
