Stop Sendmail from starting

Postby Lugh on Tue Jan 22, 2013 9:48 pm

Since UP6, my boot stops for a couple of minutes to try to start Sendmail. I don't need Sendmail and would like to find the way to stop this from trying to startup. Can someone point me to the way to do this?

Thanks,
Clyde

i've just checked in 2 installs and i don't have sendmail installed.

so my first question is: can't you uninstall it? what else goes with it?
second question/option is BUM (you'll find it in synaptic) it's a wonderful tho powerful tool to manage start-up services (use with care, don't disable if you don't know what it is/does >> BUM picks very low level services and can brick your system :shock: )

I didn't know about BUM. I just installed it from Software Manager.

That did the trick. Sendmail was an option it found as tried to load, but wasn't running. I unchecked it and the boot flies right through nice and fast now.

Thanks,
