fetchmail & sendmail deliver problems...

Post by John Yasaiti » Fri, 13 Mar 1998 04:00:00

I have fetchmail configured fine to retrieve messages from my pop3 server.
When I retrieve the emails, sendmail deilvers the mail to the user that
retrieved the mail (not the intended user on the system).  I don't think there
is anything wrong with my sendmail because up until yesterday, I had been

I have not touched any sendmail config files.  Here's an example:    

this is an example from a day ago when I had smtp mail configured:

Well.  THat's that.  Any help would greatly appreciated :)



1. Sendmail & OBSD 2.4 - can't deliver local mail.

Sendmail 8.9.3
OpenBSD 2.4 stock

Sendmail accepts incoming messages no problem, but when it tries to
deliver it to the local mailer, the local mailer won't work.  The error
message is: "mail.local: may only be run by the superuser".

mail.local is a binary in the /usr/libexec.  It is readable and
executable by every one.  It is chown root, chgrp bin.  Sendmail is in
the /usr/sbin directory, its permissions are "-r-sr-xr-x", chown root,
chgrp kmem.

Does anyone have any thoughts?  I've tried chgrp wheel sendmail -
doesn't work.  I'm really stumped here.

Any efforts are ideas are greatly appreciated.  If possible, please
email me as I don't check the group that often.
