I have sendmail (sendmail-8.18.1-1.fc40.x86_64) on my three home systems, its purpose being handling of LOCAL-ONLY mail.  That is, output from cron jobs, local backup scripts, and the like. (I review these messages using good-ole command-line 'mailx'.) External mail is handled by my hosting provider's server, to which I connect with Thunderbird via IMAP.

Two of the three systems are handling local mail correctly.  One, however, is failing with:

journalctl reports pretty much the same error message.

This began with the upgrade to F40 yesterday

Following up, a reboot cleared these hung messages and current messages are being delivered. I had tried restarting sendmail prior to my posting, but that didn't clear them.
