On my todo list: experiment with having multiple sendmail queue directories under /var/spool/mqueue

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/27

Right now my sendmail configuration handling my domains have one queue directory /var/spool/mqueue which means that each round of the queue processing handles all the outgoing mail in succession.

This is getting less OK because of the increased mail volume over time both on mail that gets in and needs to be forwarded and mail that needs to be bounced for various reasons like SPAM.

So below are some links helping me to sort out various things including having multiple queues (as then each round can handle each queue in parallel).

The default sendmail configuration is one mail queue and I hope to find out for what reason that is.

SPAM on my systems cause these very frequently:

I want to eventually split those out in separate queues separate of the main mail processing.

This probably requires some scripting instead of just sendmail configuration changes.

And some of my past sendmail posts for easier reference:
