]Is Apache trying to put a temporary file into /var/spool/mqueue
]having the correct permissions to do so?

Seems likely.  Having /var/spool/mqueue owned by the Apache
daemon would be something most folk wouldn't want to do, IMO...

]I've noticed a new directory under /var/spool which is named
]/clientmqueue. What is this for?

I'm sure somebody will correct me if I am wrong: this is the queue
used by the smmsp (SendMail Mail Submission Process) daemon,
which was added somewhat recently to Sendmail.

Basically the idea is that local submission of messages to Sendmail
can be moved to port 587 (I believe) in order to seperate it from
port 25 traffic; this would allow tweaking of various parameters
for performance and/or security reasons.

Also, which Sendmail version was included in FreeBSD 4.5 and which is
included in 4.7?

<kadmin@archangell> [/home/kadmin] [8:19]
#telnet 25
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 archangel.daleco.biz ESMTP Sendmail 8.12.6/8.12.3; Tue, 21 Jan
