I have a fresh install of OpenEMM 2015 on Ubuntu 14.04. Since I don't have a FQDN atm, I have to send over my ISPs smart relay. It's working but I have two smaller issues:

If I stop openemm the script tries to stop sendmail, but sendmail is then started again immediately (I disabled the OS boot sendmail start with update-rc.d already)
netstat says something is listening on and in the log appears a line after invoking an stop:

Code: Select all

Nov 28 20:07:51 openemm sm-mta[10397]: starting daemon (8.14.4): SMTP+queueing@00:10:00
It's the other way round like in windows: Use Start button to stop system :D

In the logs appears an entry for an email, this eMail is tried to be sent from time to time

Code: Select all

Nov 28 20:07:37 openemm sendmail[10050]: cacT62cd00000001: to=<>, delay=23:19:31, ...
Recipients' email is really called "", mailq was empty before. Where does that mail come from?

Any hints on that?

Best regards,
