 NAME
      killsm - kill the sendmail daemon

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/killsm

 DESCRIPTION
      killsm reads the /etc/mail/sendmail.pid file to find the pid number of
      the currently running sendmail daemon, and then kills that daemon. The
      ``/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop'' command does the same thing.

      HP recommends that system administrators use ``/sbin/init.d/sendmail
      start'' and ``/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop'' to start and stop sendmail;
      these startup scripts are used when the system is booting to start
      sendmail.	 Advanced system administrators can put /usr/sbin into their
      search path and just reference ``sendmail -bd -q30m'' to start
      sendmail, and killsm to stop it.

      The previous sendmail -bk option of former releases is no longer
      supported.
