Re: [PLUG] Sendmail configuration w/osTicket?

I wrote yesterday about the slowness with sendmail regarding to PHP - it
turns out it wasn't what I thought. I didn't have to change sendmail
configuration - I had to modify my hosts file! <kicks self> Apparently,
sendmail really doesn't like not having a FQDN in hosts.

The problem was that the hosts file didn't have a fully qualified domain
name. Here's an example of the change I made:

# OLD, BAD CONFIGURATION               localhost.localdomain localhost           www

# NEW, GOOD CONFIGURATION               localhost.localdomain localhost           www.mydomain.com

I hope this helps!

hehe... This makes me laugh. I know that the OP has already posted his

sendmail variables to make it faster while Postfix blazes from the moment of
