That one's the same.

Hm... It looks like just sendmail -q should do it. Requires a close
reading of the book. I'm not perfectly clear on how it works when
yourun sendmail from the commandline while an instance is already
running as a daemon but it looks like that's supposed to do it.
Thanks for pushing me to a closer reading. I'll contrive a test case
and see how it goes.
BTW, does everybody else already know about Lutz Dammbeck's movie, The
Net? From the column in the G&M , I dunno if it's great or not but it
drops all the right names to attract geekdom: Heinz von Foerster, the
Macy Conferences, Stewart Brand, Theodor Adorno, Norbert Wiener, Kurt
Goedel & Ted Kaczynski inter alia. Did anybody who's seen this think
it was sufficiently awsome that I should go out of my way to figure
out how to download it?
That list of dropped names isn't exactly *my* list. I'd like to see
the movie that includes Warren McCulloch, W. Ross Ashby, Jerry Lettvin
and maybe Claude Shannon. You know, the stuff that happened right
after the early part of _Cryptonomicon_. :-)
