What is the output of rpm -q sendmail (or) rpm -qa | grep sendmail

Posted by bgsebiosjr, 11-02-2009, 05:59 AM
the /bin/mail or /sbin/mail has been solved by installing yum install mailx. about /etc/init.d/sendmail nothing, but i have read from others that try to use this "/etc/init.d/exim". [root@hostname ~]#rpm -q sendmail package sendmail is not installed [root@hostname ~]#rpm -qa | grep sendmail [root@hostname ~]#

By installing Cpanel, they do provide exim mail service along with cpanel. And it will be good to run exim as mail service, and it will be easily get updated to the latest versions, with a single command /scripts/eximup --force

Do you want to run sendmail even though exim is there? If so, run this command. m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf service sendmail restart.

While installing make sure that 127.0.0.1 is listed in the /etc/hosts and /etc/mail/access

Posted by bgsebiosjr, 11-02-2009, 07:45 AM

Posted by bgsebiosjr, 11-02-2009, 08:12 AM
