        My problem with this same setup seemed to be the
permissions. Mine were
-rw-r-----  1 root smmsp
        What are yours?
        My temporary solution - a cron job that chowns the files.
        My long term solution - postfix.
        But if anyone can suggest a medium term solution, probably
involving some obscure sendmail security setting, that would be great
