CentOS is the problem I guess. I stay away from windblows because I didn't want Bill Gates telling me this is what I gave you...live with it. I've always wondered if RH users were just closet windows wannabes.
After spending all this time and effort I realized I can't get rid of Postfix and use sendmail as my MTA. It's baffled me why everytime I shut off postfix and kill it's processes, then try to start sendmail, sendmail fails and the postfix processes show up again.
I overlooked in the log that every notation said postfix/sendmail as the process in every instance regarding sendmail. Then checking around found out that RH decided everyone should use sendmail as a client only. That explains why the log check says that sendmail starts okay, the failure comes when trying to start the client side.
How do I get rid of postfix, the omnipresent, so I can live at peace with sendmail??
