Sending an email from Solaris using mailx on one server gives a savemail panic message whilst on another it does not.
Customer was trying to send a message to root from a Solaris 11.4 server however it caused savemail panic as follows:
root@<HOST2>:~# mailx -s "Test from <HOST2>" root
root@<HOST2>:~# Aug 27 16:09:58 <HOST2> sendmail: [ID 801593 mail.alert] 17R49wDJ035366: Losing ./qf17R49wDJ035366: savemail panic
This document appears to be related however it is about a separate problem with .forward file:
Incorrect entry in sendmail .forward file causes Savemail Panic (Doc ID 1496873.1)
root@<HOST2>:~# cat /.forward
cat: cannot open /.forward: No such file or directory
root@<HOST2>:~# cat /root/.forward
cat: cannot open /root/.forward: No such file or directory
Customer had another Solaris 11.4 server <HOST3> which did not exhibit this behavior.
