Changing the Values of Options

Options can be overridden using the -o or -O command line flags. For example,

/usr/sbin/sendmail -oT2m
sets the T (timeout) option to two minutes for this run only; the equivalent line using the long option name is
/usr/sbin/sendmail -OQueueTimeout=2m

Some options have security implications. Sendmail allows you to set these, but relinquishes its setuid root permissions thereafter[10].
