Sendmail making noises at me


#1

To begin with, do I get the ‘First Post’ for the new list…?:slight_smile:

Anyway,

While this isn’t a real problem, I’ve been trying to figure out why I’m getting
the Permission denied warning for the debug file - something to do with
eliveryMode, but I don’t hafe my O’Reilly Sendmail book around either.
Everything works fine, it’s just been bugging me for a while now, and I’m
damned if I can figure it out…

Here’s the output I’m getting with every mailed transaction:

write_log:fopen_as_user: given non-root anchored path: eliveryMode=b
sendmail: fopen_as_user: given non-root anchored path: eliveryMode=b
write_log:Warning: Cannot open debug file eliveryMode=b: Permission denied

Any ideas?

That really doesn’t sound like sendmail 8.
What exact version of sendmail are you running?

Unless it’s a recentish sendmail inc sendmail (aka berkeley sendmail)
I suggest you use the simplified sendmail options per the Makefile.

It looks like you have a missing ‘d’ somewhere…

HAH! That would explain it… you know I had thought that before, then
dismissed it as being too, well obvious.
