How to Run the Old Mail Queue, /var/spool/omqueue

To run an old mail queue, follow these instructions.

  1. Become an administrator.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

  2. Run the old mail queue.
    # /usr/lib/sendmail -oQ/var/spool/omqueue -q

    The –oQ flag specifies an alternate queue directory. The –q flag says to run every job in the queue. Use the –v flag if you are displaying the verbose output on the screen.

  3. Remove the empty directory.
    # rmdir /var/spool/omqueue
