Ok, that MAX_DAEMON_CHILDREN setting is my sendmail.mc file. I think I
understand how this works, a sendmail.cf file can be generated from a
sendmail.mc file. I not sure mine ever has been. When I used webmin to
edit a few sendmail options, I saw that it added lines to the
sendmail.cf file without ever modifying the sendmail.mc file.
So is there a corresponding setting in the sendmail.cf file that relates
to the MAX_DAEMON_CHILDREN option in sendmail.mc?
Sendmail is so confusing...
