Why in Linux do I sometimes see 2 queues for the same domain?
If a user sends a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and someoneelse@YAHOO.COM I notice that two out directories for the domain yahoo.com are created – namely "YAHOO.COM" & "yahoo.com" as below
[log]# dir /opt/gordano/mail/out Yahoo.com YAHOO.COM eIQnetworks.com naturrio.com.pl somecompany.dom other.do.uk fourandtwentyblackbirds.det mothergoose.rhymes.dom lucy.peanuts.do.be incense.do.in sympathy.cards.do.nl hotmial.dom lunchwerks.do.uk othercompany.dom yahoo.com [log]#
In releases prior to 3063 there was a case sensitivity issue in the handling of outgoing mail queues. This could result in more than one queue for the same domain depending on whether the letters forming the domain name were lower or upper case. This did not result in any issues with the
delivery of mail other than the fact that multiple queues were used.
The queue handling has now been modified to remove case sensitivity.
