Subj:   Re: Sendmail from MP-RAS
From:   Christopher Platt

we have mail running on our servers... it has gone postal on us twice in about 2 years... you will have to prune some of the mail log files or you will fill up your file systems if/when goes postal... I would put a check into to make sure that mail does not get "stuck" ... ps -ef | grep mail to make sure the mail is making it through come rain or shine...

# simple mail checker to see if we have mail on any node
rallsh -sv 'ps -ef | grep -i mail | grep -v grep | grep -v ugot | grep -v
surrc ' | grep -v byn
if [ "$?" -ne "1" ]
echo " You got mail..........! "
echo " You got mail on `uname`  logon and do ps -ef and grep for mail" |
mailx -s "You got mail"  xlatt@yourplace.com msaw@yourplace.com
echo "You have justed checked to see if there is orphaned mail "
echo " there was not any "
