Starting the sendmail daemon during system boot
To configure the /etc/rc.tcpip file such that the sendmail daemon also starts when the system is booted, use this procedure.
- Edit the /etc/rc.tcpip file by using a text editor of your choice.
- To start the sendmail MTA daemon automatically on system boot, find the line that begins
start /usr/lib/sendmail.By default, this line is not commented, which means a # (hash sign) is not present at the beginning of the line. However, if it is commented, delete the # (hash sign).
- If you want to start the sendmail client queue runner on system boot,
append the following line to the /etc/rc.tcpip file to start the
sendmail command as mail submission program (MSP):
/usr/lib/sendmail -L sm-msp-queue -Ac -q 30m
- Save the /etc/rc.tcpip file.
