Depending on the version of FreeBSD and the version of sendmail in that version will determine how sendmail is started by default. Look in /etc/rc.conf and /etc/defaults/rc.conf for specific settings.

Typically sendmail will process queues on its own on a regular interval. No cron job required.

Hi all,

Do you need to include specific commands to periodically process the queue
with sendmail?  With sendmail I would explicitly (via cron) rerun queue
processing every 30 minutes or so. Is there any better method to do this in
sendmail itself. The reason for this question is that some of the mails
which needs to be delivered to another mail server was not reachable and
this mail was not processed for 4 days. but when i manually flush the queue
i am able to send the mail to the RCPT mail server. Any fields i need to
change in Sendmail for solving this problem.

Regards
Kiran Kumar
