Response to: Still can't get it to work

replying to my own post:
I contacted sendmail.org and the problem I had. I already had done the suggested changes for Don'tblmeme to get sendmail to run the first time in OSX. I was informed that Apple failed to set the set-group-id bit on the sendmail binary. i was also given the following permissions to check as stated in the sendmail security. This solved my problems!
below is the quoted text reply from the sendmail.org folks, a great group people and have always been willing to help this novice user!


"Please check the permissions as stated in sendmail/SECURITY:


-r-xr-sr-x root smmsp ... /PATH/TO/sendmail
drwxrwx--- smmsp smmsp ... /var/spool/clientmqueue
drwx------ root wheel ... /var/spool/mqueue
-r--r--r-- root wheel ... /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
-r--r--r-- root wheel ... /etc/mail/submit.cf


If that doesn't help, post the permissions for those
files/directories, and the output of


grep smmsp /etc/passwd /etc/group"
