clearly sendmail is running, but not as a daemon. It gets called for every single mail by some other process running as root. You suspect squid to do so? (unlikely, why should a webcache send emails...) Well, then run squid as another user and watch the logs, should be "from=squiduser" then... The problem with too much root- processes is, you can't tell which one is going mad. enjoy, Armin -- PUBBOX Postmaster + spam-killer.
