[K12OSN] RH7.2 to RH8.0 migration issue



I recently migrated one of our samba servers from RH7.2 to RH8.0.  Actually
it was a new install of RH8.0 on new hardware followed by copying over the
appropriate files/directories.  All seemed to running very well, but I
discovered a small glitch last week.  The output of my cron backup job was
not appearing in the root inbox.  Upon looking at maillog I see the
following pair of messages each time the cron job was run.  I use pine to
occasionally look at the output.  In any event, the cron job was running
successfully.


Dec 22 04:12:11 xxsrv01 sendmail[24835]: gBM927Pt024835: from=root,
size=1773269, class=0, nrcpts=1,
msgid=<200212220902  gBM927Pt024835 xxsrv01 eastgranby k12 ct us>,
relay=root localhost
Dec 22 04:12:31 xxsrv01 sendmail[24835]: gBM927Pt024835: to=root,
ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:10:24, xdelay=00:00:20, mailer=relay,
pri=30243, relay=localhost.localdomain. [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0,
stat=Deferred: Connection refused by localhost.localdomain.


I took a look at maillog on a RH7.2 samba server and this is the what is in
the log.

Jan  1 03:08:55 yyysrv01 sendmail[15154]: h0183PH15154: from=root, size=700,
class=0, nrcpts=1,
msgid=<200301010803 h0183PH15154 yyysrv01 eastgranby k12 ct us>,
relay=root localhost
Jan  1 03:08:56 yyysrv01 sendmail[15154]: h0183PH15154: to=root,
ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:05:31, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=local,
pri=30700, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

The major difference seems to be mailer=relay versus mailer=local.  Can
anyone give me an explanation of how or where this is set?

Note that on both samba servers, the sendmail service was not started.

For the heck of it, I started sendmail on RH8.0 (service sendmail start) and
several seconds later, the output from all the cron jobs, going back to when
the server was installed, appeared in the root inbox.
