Response to: Can't send mail: broken in X 10.1.5????

I am experiencing exactly the same error with 10.1.5. I had sendmail working properly under 10.1 through 10.1.3 with the DontBlameSendmail directive set properly, but with 10.1.5 sendmail doesn't want to work.

I receive this message in the terminal: "can not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied. Program mode requires special privileges, e.g., root or TrustedUser."

then in mail.log, the following entries appear:

unable to qualify my own domain name (localhost) -- using short name

NOQUEUE: SYSERR(tim): can not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied"

Any ideas what's going on?
