I had no troubles getting postfix setup under 1.6.1, but I have one
issue with it now, under -current, that I just can't figure out.
It should be a trivial permissions thing, but I've tweeked, I've read
docs, I've changed ownerships, and I just can't find what needs changed.
Looking online I see lots of questions about this error and few
replies which usually clues me in that it's a RTFM issue, but I am
ready to be beat over the head with something obvious :)
Postfix starts, runs, is listening on port 25 just fine.
However, any attempt to send mail gets this in the maillog:
Jul 19 09:15:36 bmcewen sendmail: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): can
not chdir(/var/spool/clientmqueue/): Permission denied
and pine tells me "smtp "went away".
the dir in question is such:
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512 Jul 16 07:53 clientmqueue original
postfix user is "postfix" in main.cf (or master.cf, I forget which
sets that). I've tried chown to postfix for this dir, as well as
setting o:w etc.
Is there a difference in the way postfix is setup to be chroot'd
now? Or with the original sendmail setup?
Thanks for help; this is -current from mid-July, from the now-1-
revision-outdated restore CD.
