New install on Centos 6.2 64-bit
I'm using the repoforge rpm mimedefang-2.70-1.el6.rf.x86_64 for
I basically copied over my filter from an old Centos 3 install. The only
thing I do in the filter is check to see if the recipient exists on
another server if the domain is a particular domain. I let the mta
(Sendmail) check if the domain is local.
I soon realized that I had forgot to turn on the MX_RECIPIENT_CHECK=yes
in my sysconfig/mimedefang file. Mimedefang was running OK before I did
this, it was just not doing anything.
Once I reloaded, then restarted mimedefang, I started getting the
Milter (mimedefang): write(Q) returned -1, expected 5: Broken pipe
Milter (mimedefang): to error state
These are from Sendmail. Then if seemed to fix itself and started doing
the right thing.
Can anyone explain what those two line indicate?
When I restarted mimedefang, I stopped sendmail before restarting
mimedefang, and started sendmail after mimedefang finished starting.
Posts from ages ago didn't really tell me much, but it seemed like a
real problem back then, but not so much any more.
Just curious, since it seems OK. But there was a 16 minute delay from
the time the error messages were thrown until I saw the first mimedefang
message that indicated things were fine. This is a fairly busy server.
