I’ve looked thru all the stuff at sendmail.org (or whatever its name is now, they seem to have gone corporate…) and don’t see anything relating to this:

I get a series of log entries in /var/log/maillog, once or twice a day at various times–not 12 or 24 hours apart. not always the identical series either. here’s the latest one:

Oct 27 21:28:55 fcshome sendmail[7939]: starting daemon (8.14.7): SMTP+queueing@01:00:00
Oct 27 21:28:56 fcshome sendmail[7980]: starting daemon (8.14.7): SMTP+queueing@01:00:00
Oct 27 21:28:56 fcshome sm-msp-queue[7992]: starting daemon (8.14.7): queueing@01:00:00
Oct 27 21:29:19 fcshome sendmail[8054]: starting daemon (8.14.7): SMTP+queueing@01:00:00
Oct 27 21:29:19 fcshome sm-msp-queue[8093]: starting daemon (8.14.7): queueing@01:00:00
Oct 27 21:29:19 fcshome sendmail[8095]: starting daemon (8.14.7): SMTP+queueing@01:00:00

Anyone have a clue what this is all about? and why so many?
