Response to: Can't send mail through ROOT

Here you see a listing of my /var/spool/ directory

[g4x:/var/spool] martin% ll
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 7 root wheel 238 Feb 5 08:04 .
drwxr-xr-x 20 root wheel 680 Mar 16 19:13 ..
drwxrwxr-x 2 daemon daemon 68 Jul 14 2002 Faxes
drwxrwx--- 3 smmsp smmsp 102 Mar 16 20:30 clientmqueue
drwx------ 4 daemon admin 136 Mar 13 17:56 cups
drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 204 Mar 16 19:13 lock
drwxr-x--- 22 root wheel 748 Mar 16 21:55 mqueue

my mails are queued in the "mqueue" directory and not in the "clientmqueue"

maybe the update has reset or changed some settings and this can help you to find out which these are

theres a tool which might also be helpfull
the "webmin" configuration programm
download for free on

you also need to download the sendmail.wbm module

this enables you to access all setting of sendmail (and a lot of other services and deamons run on Mac OS X via a webbrowser

hope it helps
