After many frustrating hours of trying to deal with the Sendmail 8.9.1
annoyances, and how it doesn't deal with Linuxconf very well, I figured I'd
ask the experts. ;)
I have Sendmail 8.8.8 -- I want to upgrade to 8.9.1 to take advantage of
the new, more powerful SPAM filters that 8.9.1 offers. HOWEVER -- I also
need to update my sendmail.cf as well, and here's the rub.
I followed the (sometimes obtuse) instructions on how to configure Sendmail
8.9.1 and started modifying it to match my existing 8.8.8 config. (WIth
the correct Cw fields, variables, etc.)
Now, when I tried to start it, I got these errors:
Oct 2 01:18:29 larp sendmail: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(nobody): queuename:
Cannot create "qfBAA10021" in "/var/spool/mqueue" (euid=65534): Permission
Oct 2 01:15:01 larp sendmail: BAA09976: to=<root at larp.com>,
ctladdr=<horus at larp.com> (1000/100), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:00,
mailer=local, stat=unknown mailer error 1
Oct 2 01:15:02 larp sendmail: BAA09976: BAA09986: DSN: unknown
mailer error 1
Erg... This was pretty bad and got me so annoyed I downgraded back to 8.8.8
so I could keep my mailserver running.
I've searched and found some "Howto" documents on configuring Sendmail, but
they're all for 8.8.7- ... I've done this before, but damn... I forgot how
hard it was. :(
Any suggestions? Tips? Hints? Locations of small-arms manafacturers? ;)
...Man, the "Bat Book" is huge...
