If the MMDF UUCP channel hands off mail to UUCP,
but the mail does not get delivered immediately,
even though you have configured both MMDF and UUCP
to deliver messages immediately,
there is an omission in the /usr/mmdf/mmdftailor file.
The first step to take is to make sure that UUCP is set up to call out immediately. The Systems file entry for the UUCP host should have the keyword Any in the schedule field to call out at any time. For example, if the remote UUCP host is called oratory, then the entry for oratory in /usr/lib/uucp/Systems should begin:
oratory Any ...You must also set up MMDF to transfer the mail to the UUCP channel immediately. Do this by using the Channel Administration Manager to specify Immediate delivery mode for the uucp channel.
Add this line to /usr/mmdf/mmdftailor:
UUXSTR "uux -"
