Response to: sendmail setup described fails for me

Your /usr/sbin/sendmail command there has the backslash character (\) twice. Are you executing the command all on one line with the backslash characters?


Without the slashes, the command works just fine for me on a stock installed system (just reinstalled Jaguar on one of my test machines last night).


Are there any clues in /var/log/mail.log?
