Cant create output suspicious file bav.rc

Post by sapeksh » Thu Nov 20, 2008 1:28 pm

Hi all,

I'm receiving the following error when i send a test mail from a gmail account to my bounce address (domain name and mail address changed):

Nov 20 17:40:25 abc sendmail[3653]: mAKCANav003653: from=<>, size=1947, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, []

Any pointers will be appreciated.

Change the permissions on /home/openemm/conf/bav/bav.rc

Code: Select all

-rw-r----- 1 root    root    1423 Sep  3 07:07 bav.rc
Sendmail runs as setuid root, and procmail bitches heartily if the permissions on that file aren't right.

Make THAT error go away anyway.
