Original Problem:

>We are now running SunOS 4.0.3 sendmail and uucp on our Sun 3/1xx machines,
>dialling via TrailBlazers. Every time uucp sends a file it sends a report
>via mail to the "uucp" account like this:
>uuxqt cmd () status (exit 0, signal 0)

Solution from Bob Weissman (

This is easy. Simply add the "-z" flag to the invocations of "uux"
in your /etc/ See the uux(1C) man page.

Look for the "uucp" and "smartuucp" mailers in You'll
see lines something like

Muucp, P=/usr/bin/uux, F=msDFMhuU, S=13, R=23,
        A=uux - -r $h!rmail ($u)

Msmartuucp, P=/usr/bin/uux, F=CmsDFMhuU, S=22, R=22,
        A=uux - -r $h!rmail ($u)

Just add "-z" to the "A=" specification lines.

It's not that easy. Sun support hadn't the vaguest......

Thanks again to the wonderlist
