I'm curious about the lack of response since I was thinking there was a good chance this would be a fairly obvious one for our more experienced players. Am I wrong in thinking that this is just a permissions/security issue? Just to recap: I'm trying to run maildrop from /etc/mail/aliases with the following entry: second-domain-tld: "|/usr/local/bin/maildrop -d [EMAIL PROTECTED]" where second-domain-tld is from an entry in virtusertable. Initially this gave me: Dec 25 17:05:19 maildrop: Cannot set my user or group id. so as per the above included text, I tried making maildrop setuid: Dec 26 15:08:20 maildrop: You are not a trusted user. Any and all hints, suggestions, advice and abuse welcome as all my research efforts are getting me nowhere at the moment.
