Seems that way...

This is SuSE Linux. It runs in init 2 instead of init 3 like Red
Hat. Turbo is the same way. Init 3 gives you an XWindows login, init 2
gives you character mode logins, which I much prefer.
When sendmail didn't send a bunch of things to some hosts that just
were not on the net often, I set up a sendmail -q in my crontab to insure
that things keep trying to connect.
BUT... fetchmail WAS giving me mail till I shut down when I wiped out
the aliases file. I was going to remount the drive on another machine and
try drastic recovery by scanning the disk blocks in raw mode. Then I
realized I probably didn't have to go quite that far... and put the
machine back on line.

Ask away, some of us might learn something.
