Well, I've looked closer to mailq. And It wasn't checking the transpor queue.
Sound strange... however I've solved it form me in diffrent way... I had
somewhere old sources of 2.99.50s19 and I used mailq binary from it. Now it
works fine (shows the mailq, with correct comms.)

Mhm.. I was thinking about the same thing. 
But would it be possible to check mailq in diffrent way (without using TCP/IP
port, and problems with binding it...)

Hmm I realised about it just after writting that post... unfortunetly I've
removed sources and all stuff from solaris box, so can't check it now. :(

Ok, I've corrected that :)

thnx for explanation of few things... now I'm goint to look closer of smtp-auth
and SSL stuff...
