Weird... I just started having the exact same problem today at 12:50pm
EST.  Only change made was updating SA to the latest CVS of 2.50.  Last
update was about 4 weeks ago.

Subject: mqueue file permissions

I've been seeing problems with the mqueue qf file modes when
SpamAssassin is enabled, I've used both SpamAssassin 2.43 and 2.50.  The
qf files are being delivered to the mqueue directory mode 664 instead of
600 which sendmail then complains about bogus uid even though it's the
permission.  Has anyone seen this before?

uid=0, mode=100664 Jan 29 09:34:34 alpha sendmail[7657]: h0THY4D07651:
