SubjectRe: [Fwd: sendmail fails to deliver mail with attachments in /var/spool/mqueue]

Andre,

SSH is running on this system, so send me your IP address to add to the
hosts.allow file and I'll send you an account so you can get into the
box and see just what's happening with ssh. Andre Hedrick has root
privileges on this machine, so if I'm ever not around, he can get into
it. I am running 2.2.18pre19 on i right now, and was going to upgrade
to 2.2.18-pre20 this evening, but let's look into this first since Alan
may have another patch to post ....
