I upgraded an old server from 8.6.12 to 8.9.2. Before the upgrade, I had a
perl script that got executed for certain mail addresses to act as an
autoresponder (away messages).
But now that I got sendmail 8.9.2, I got the following error:
----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/usr/bin/perl /usr/local/adm/mail/repondeur/distrib2 #baldur"
(expanded from: baldur)
----- Transcript of session follows -----
Can't open perl script "/usr/local/adm/mail/repondeur/distrib2": Permission
554 "|/usr/bin/perl /usr/local/adm/mail/repondeur/distrib2 #baldur"...
unknown mailer error 13
554 /home/jle/dead.letter... cannot open /home/jle/dead.letter: Permission
Quote: ----- Original message follows -----
I have added the line in /SENDMAIL/ANY/SHELL/ in /etc/shells, I verified
that no directory is group and/or other writable, and even tried with
The / /usr /usr/local /usr/local/bin /etc /usr/local/adm
/usr/local/adm/mail and /usr/local/adm/mail/repondeur are r-x for group
and other, no write anywhere.
Only the links are 777, /usr/bin/perl points to /usr/local/bin/perl which
points to /usr/local/bin/perl5.00502 . The last one is rwxr-xr-x.
I keep getting the same error :-( Where can the error come from ?
