An alternative configuration file
can be specified using the
-C flag; for example,
uses the configuration file
test.cf instead of the default
/etc/sendmail.cf. If the
-C flag has no value
it defaults to
sendmail.cf in the current directory.
- /usr/sbin/sendmail -Ctest.cf -oQ/tmp/mqueue
Sendmail gives up its setuid root permissions
when you use this flag, so it is common to use a publicly writable directory
(such as /tmp)
as the spool directory (QueueDirectory or Q option) while testing.
