I'm setting up a contact page on a site.

Typically I use form inputs to assemble the data and then use the mail()
function to send the data to the appropriate user.

Whenever I submit the form data, I immediately see a system error
reporting that sendmail (version 8.12.1) cant chdir to
/var/spool/clientmqueue ... and naturally the mail does not get

Permissions and ownership of this directory are 4770 and root.smmsp
respectively. (smmsp is the SendMail Mail Submission Protocol
userid/groupid).  If I change permissions to 4777, the mail gets
through, but I get a syslog warning that I have dangerous permissions
set for that directory (I agree).

Has anyone else experienced this issue, and or can anyone recommend a
secure solution.
