Well I sure could send you the file but I am using the default
sendmail.conf. Thats from RH, I dont't know about Debian... yet ;-)

ps -ax

shows something like [sendmail: accepting connections on port 25]

When I send thru my box, the mail is sent immediately if possible, or queued
for later delivery. The queue can be cleared manually by

sendmail -q

and viewed by mailq. Sendmail can also be run in a "queueing only" mode
where it will not try to send immediately so that you can go offline, write
replies at leisure and keep queueing them. When you connect, a sendmail -q
would do the job. The process is detailed in sendmail docs.
