More guessing (as I'm still not clear on the specifics of what is

Is sendmail running as user:smmsp when it's calling maildrop? That would
explain why maildrop isn't able to change itself to user:vmail, no? Should
setting the setuid bit circumvent this? When I try that I get:

Dec 26 15:08:20 maildrop[93442]: You are not a trusted user.

where I guess "You" = smmsp?

If this is the case, then it must be a problem for any program run from
/etc/mail/aliases, is this just too hard to do on a default FreeBSD? Still
out of my depth here but learning a bit more. :)
