Followed your example and set up mail and got two daily reports. Installed 10.1.5 update and couldn't send/receive mail, so I went through your steps and get an error when trying to send mail. Here's where I'm at and I don't really understand what's going on.


[localhost:~] baltwo% sudo chmod g-w /
[localhost:~] baltwo% mail root
Subject: test
this is it
.
EOT
[localhost:~] baltwo% can not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied
Program mode requires special privileges, e.g., root or TrustedUser.


How do I set privileges for "program mode"?
