making sense of sendmail logfile

i need to find out who sent a particular message. how exactly can i 
figure out, from sendmail's logfile, what "from:" line matches what 
"to:" line?
i used to think it was the PID, but at least in this case, there is no 
PID matching the PID on the "to:" lines (perhaps because this is an 
alias, sendmail uses a different process?).

in this example:
Sep  2 11:10:21 ns sendmail[31782]: g8289hE31779: ....
what about that last g8289hE..etc..., does this tell me which parts of 
the logfile have to do with each other?
(so can i just grep g8289... from the logfile to get the full log of 
the transaction?)

"g8289hE31779" is the queue id, which identifies an individual
message. All log entries with the same queue id correspond to the same
message.

So, yes, you can grep for the queue id to get all log messages
corresponding to a specific email message.

imap problem

Hello everybody

Some days ago one of my servers was cracked, the intruder used a rootkit 
and did some nasty things on my server, I preferred to reinstall the 
server, it was a RH 7.2, and I upgraded to RH 7.3

When the system was under attack, or some moments later, my users noticed 
that they couldn't enter anymore to read their email via webmail, I was 
using IMP via imap, after reinstalling, imap isn't working yet, my 
firewall rules are set for imap like this:
ipchains -A input -s 0/0 -d 0/0 143 -p tcp -j accept
for pop3:
ipchains -A input -s 0/0 -d 0/0 110 -p tcp -j accept

pop3 is working fine before and after the reinstallation, but imap isn't,
I tested using an email client: Evolution, using imap, and doesn't work 
with imap, when I configure it for pop3 it works fine.

I don't know what is wrong, in my hosts.[allow|deny] I don't have nothing 
reffering to that services, in my xinetd it is enabled.

I've upgraded my IMP thinking about it could be the problem... it doesn't.
I'm using imap-2001a-10, I hope someone could help me please.

Thanks in advance.
David

Streaming mutimedia doesn't.

Hi!

This is perhaps a bit of a general rant, but any ideas would help.

I've played with lots of combinations of Linux distros and hardware. I
currently use as my workstation a Dell precision 340 with a 1.9G P4 (I
prefer Athlons...), plenty of memory, plenty of disk etc etc. But this
problem seems to run through them all:

I just don't seem to be able to get streaming multimedia to work right.
Is there something fundamentally broken in the main Linux-compatible web
browsers (old Netscape 4.x, Mozilla 1.0, Opera) that means they don't
talk to real player? Is there something fundamentally broken in the
Linux port of real player? Is it something broken in Gnome or Sawfish
(which I use the most since I use Red hat 7.3 at the moment). Is Ximian
broken?

Or am I broken somewhere - is this a really, really obvious thing that I
haven't done somewhere?

Not just real player either - java and flash never seem to work quite
right, either.

I'm pretty fed up with downloading various different plugins that are
needed and then after installing them finding that they still don't
bloody work! In the end, I often end up running up a virtual machine
with Windows in it, and using Internet Explorer because basically it
works (God, I _hate_ saying that about MS products!!!)·

Someone tell me I'm missing something simple - I'd rather that I was

I have never managed to get Realplayer to work inside Netscape/Mozilla,
however the client works perfectly on its own. I just downloaded it and
ran it.

Flash also works fine under Mozilla 1.0. All you have to do is download
the required files (Mozilla has a link somewhere - press the Mozilla
spinner thing on your browser) and copy the plugin into the right
location.

GNOME, Sawfish, and Ximian (which isn't a 'thing', more a group of
people) aren't anything to do with it.

The only things I can't get working are Java applets, but I've not
really been trying that hard. Adobe's PDF plugin seems to work well
though.

If you don't know, typing "about:plugins" into your Mozilla addressbar
will tell you what plugins are loaded, and if you run Mozilla from a
command prompt (XTerm, Gnome terminal, etc) you might see some errors
that could help pinpoint any problems you're having.

No problems for me, I use realplayer and mplayer with Mozilla.

They work fine for me, but I usually turn them off to be spared the
crap.

Really?  My windows hosts crash much more often than my Linux hosts.

Mozilla seems much more tolerant to me of bad javascript and bad html
than IE 6.

Good point - I should have mentioned that Realplayer itself runs ok.
Some places on the web, I can occasionally click on a "listen to this"
button and it works. But it seems like most web sites now (certainly
lots of internet radio sites) don't put simple, old fashioned links to
the stream. I guess it's probably more to do with the browsers not
passing the information to realplayer in the correct format or
something.

Yeah, I think I got flash working ok mostly. I have to confess that I
haven't recently gone into non-working web sites in great detail - I
just got so used to about 30% of the web not working in linux that I
just went "Oh, another one not working - that'll be multimedia then."
and ignored it.
