I followed the directions here for setting up sendmail by editing the config files and running the sendmail update script. For some reason the changes don't appear to take effect. I made the property entry into Netinfo as suggested as well.
Even running just the following recommended command results in the error regarding a world-writeable directory.
/usr/sbin/sendmail \ -OdontBlameSendmail=GroupWritableDirPathSafe \
451 4.0.0 /etc/mail/sendmail.cf: line 94: fileclass: cannot open '/etc/mail/local-host-names': World writable directory
Has anyone else found this problem and perhaps a work-around? Any suggestions for things to check?
My config is a standard 10.2 install directly from Apple.
