I'm running sendmail and have about 500 emails a day - just wondering if an=
yone ever had problems with lots of sendmail forks  with the status sbwait =
(200)? I'm dialing up to retieve the mail from our ISP.

The sbwait processes don't ever seem to go away - I know that sbwait means =
that the handling program (sendmail in this case) is handling data input - =
ouput through a port and netstat confirms this. Can anyone please make any =
suggestions ?=20
