Sendmail with permission denied errors
Posted on 2007-04-02
Running Sendmail 8.13 with something called Scalix as the graphical front end, if you will.
Anyway, when I
tail -f /var/log/maillog
I get this:
Apr 2 15:18:18 qmail sendmail: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): can not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied
So we are not getting any mail right now.
Trying to restart sendmail gives me this:
Shutting down sendmail: [ OK ]
Shutting down sm-client: [FAILED]
Starting sendmail: [ OK ]
Starting sm-client: can not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied
Program mode requires special privileges, e.g., root or TrustedUser.
