    sendmail problems

    i am running centos 4 and just installed sendmail. when i try to start it i get this error

    Failed to start sendmail :

    Starting sendmail: [ OK ]
    Starting sm-client: can not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied
    Program mode requires special privileges, e.g., root or TrustedUser.

    also i noticed there is no file in /var/run

    any ideas?

    Have you checked the permissions on the /var/spool/clientmqueue/ folder? for testing, you might open it up to rwx everyone to see if this is the real problem. Just a thought.
