still testing FC4 test 1 here...

have cut and paste 350 lines of the below from root terminal in one single paste

cat reminder.msg | mail -s 'message test ' user@domain.com

then test bed server freezed up!

last screen shows, out of memory something, killed sendmail process ,
and numlock doesnt respond :( Ctrl-Alt-Del as well, doesnt reply to any ICMP and
ssh request, totally dead, hard reboot clears everthing back again.

i did this for 3 times, everything is the same.

the reminder.msg file is 3000K, test bed server is 512MB memory with 1024 swap,
compaq proliant g3 series under FC4test1, FC1 to FC3 worked fine with this server.
spamassassin was running when this happenned with some procmail rules combination.
sendmail works fine though with this.

i am the only the can have access and can send email using this server.
the 350 emails freezing up sendmail issue shocked me, any other clues?
