Absolutely nothing in the crontab. All of the sendmails are zombie
processes. This is why I can't understand whats going on, is this a mail
loop issue perhaps ?. Are there any viruses that target sendmail ?
One thing I found out is my version of sendmail it's 8.6.12/8.6.9
Is this way out of date ?
Thanks again I really appreciate it.
