At a guess, either the queue directories for either or both the MSP and MTA sendmail instances have the wrong permissions or one or other of MSP, MTA sendmail instances is running with the wrong user credentials. You shouldn't get that by doing portupgrade -- certainly I've done a few 'portupgrade -af' jobs as part of 6.x -> 7.0 upgrading and not seen anything similar. Anyhow, you can check that files and directories have the correct ownership etc. by: # mtree -p / -ef /etc/mtree/BSD.sendmail.dist # mtree -p /var -ef /etc/mtree/BSD.var.dist You can fix any problems by: # mtree -p / -U /etc/mtree/BSD.sendmail.dist # mtree -p /var -U /etc/mtree/BSD.var.dist The other thing to check is that you are running sendmail using the correct users and groups. You should see something like this: # ps -o ruser,rgroup,svuid,svgid,command -p `head -1 /var/run/sendmail.pid` -p `head -1 /var/spool/clientmqueue/sm-client.pid` RUSER RGROUP SVUID SVGID COMMAND root wheel 0 25 sendmail: accepting connections (sendmail) smmsp smmsp 25 25 sendmail: Queue [EMAIL PROTECTED]:30:00 for /var/spool/clientm And that you have the following lines somewhere in /etc/master.passwd: smmsp:*:25:25::0:0:Sendmail Submission User:/var/spool/clientmqueue:/usr/sbin/nologin mailnull:*:26:26::0:0:Sendmail Default User:/var/spool/mqueue:/usr/sbin/nologin and the following in /etc/group: smmsp:*:25: mailnull:*:26: and that the actual sendmail binary (assuming you're using the base system sendmail and not one from ports) has the following ownership and permissions: # ls -l /usr/libexec/sendmail/ total 688 - -r-xr-sr-x 1 root smmsp 686268 Dec 30 13:50 sendmail* Cheers, Matthew - -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 7 Priory Courtyard Flat 3 PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Ramsgate Kent, CT11 9PW -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.4 (FreeBSD) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFHf2DR8Mjk52CukIwRCCdDAJ97dbwlBhHeL8s+97C3dGy5DI7KwQCeKA9L cBqEBEfLO5hHwq65cDvZrYI= =DKg1 -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
