    Sendmail problem?


    I got a warning in my system log saying "dangerous permissions on /var/spool/clientmqueue" so I looked at it and changed the permissions.

    Now, sendmail is broke and no matter what I do to that folder, sendmail keeps giving me the same error:

    SYSERR(root): can not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied

    Program mode requires special privileges, e.g., root or TrustedUser.

    Heelp me!

    chown the folder to sendmail's process UID, i.e.

    chown smmsp /var/spool/clientmqueue
