  Configuring sendmail on Jaguar
Subject:   sendmail setup described fails for me
Date:   2002-09-19 14:30:03
From:   anonymous2
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 \
-bd -q1h


451 4.0.0 /etc/mail/sendmail.cf: line 94: fileclass: cannot open '/etc/mail/local-host-names': World writable directory


What gives?


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.


Thanks, Alex
