Response to: Problem with sendmail

I got the same message. So I went back and looked at my hostconfig file. I had put lower case -yes- in the MAILSERVER line.


When I changed this, stopped and restarted Sendmail, I got this error message:


Starting mail services
451 4.0.0 /etc/mail/sendmail.cf: line 93: fileclass: cannot open '/etc/mail/local-host-names': Group writable directory


so I sudo chmod g-w / in the etc/mail directory.


That worked.
